Condolence & Memory Journal


Love you Girl.
(You know why I did not attend services - Miss you and I still have you on video with the other family members I could film. Irvin liked being a 'Star' and you did well also. Just watched it today with Lura.)

Always Love,

Chick & Family,
I was so sorry to hear your Mom has passed away but happy for her because now in Heaven, she suffers no more! I'm sorry I couldn't come by and visit with you but I had just had foot surgery & pretty much stuck at home. But she was such a wonderful person always smiling and happy! You all are in my prayers & heart and I always like to share a favorite verse from Matthew 5:4 it says:
Blessed are those that morn; for they shall be comforted.

So sorry to hear about Ms. Helen. I didn't realize she had been going through
all that. She was so special to so many. When I first started dancing, she
helped me to understand what the dance was all about and even made a tape
in both English & Hungarian singing it for me. She was an inspiration for me
to keep on dancing like she did. Now I'm the oldest one dancing! It was
always fun to have those Hungarian lessons with the elders at practice.
Sorry I missed the service as I got word late after being out of town. Will keep
the family in my prayers.

Ms Helen was such a sweet and wonderful person and I always looked forward to seeing her at the clinic. She'll be greatly missed and we all have good memories of her that we'll cherish. My condolences to the family in this time of loss of such a wonderful person! I'm so grateful for all the time I did get to spend with her and I was always impressed by her kindness and vitality.
