Thinking of you all during this time of loss. May your precious memories bring comfort to your hearts.

From: Pat Casey Jurgens
Relation: Friend of Carol

Dear Carol and family. Please allow me to share my deepest sympathy at the passing of your mother. This has been a difficult time and certainly she leaves a deep void although we know she is now experiencing the truest form of energy and light and is looking down on us in her most motherly fashion. I will share with you Deanna Edward’s poem about “My Mother’s Hands” which I shared in my mother’s eulogy. Allow me to quote only a few lines: “My Mother’s Hands, all the work they have done and the burden’s they’ve borne, I know only God understands. There is magic and mystery when I think about the wonder of my mother’s hands.” I will continue to check in with you. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
