  2. Dear Uncle Jim and Family,

    Jay and I are saddened by this news, and so grateful for being able to reconnect with Aunt Pma ( and everyone) at our family reunion many years ago.
    We are keeping you all in our hearts at this diffiuclt time.

  3. Mary and I are sorry for your loss.
    The times we meet mrs. Sweeney at Garry’s house for thanksgiving, she was always very gracious.
    It was obvious that the grandchildren loved their grandmother.
    Her children loved and had tremendous respect for her.
    She is a Loss to all. But our lord embraced her and welcomed her into his kingdom.
    I will continue to pray for the family.

  4. Dear Anne,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. Loosing your Mom is difficult and there are going to be those times that you want to talk to her but can’t.
    May the Lord keep her and protect her and hold her always in the palm of his hand…
    Deepest Sympathy
