Maureen, Maurice and Family,

Sometimes it is hard to find the right words at a time like this, but in my heart she was my second Mom. Her passing is sorrowful, but she has been released from earthly discomforts to a wonderful place with the Lord.

Bless you all.

Diane & Family

I was so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I know you cared for her greatly and did all you could to make her as comfortable as possible over this past year or so. I hope you and your family are all doing well. My thoughts are with you. I unfortunately will not be able to attend the service. I have previous family commitment.
