We thank God for letting us have her for a short time. She was a wonderful wife, mother and person. She will be missed very much. As her mother always quoted after a loved one’s passing, “Next year in Jerusalem.”
The family would like to extend thanks to their family and friends who supported us, Hillcrest Hospice, Dr. Lawrence Canning, and Dr. Stephen Rydzak.
