To Karen and Valerie and your families
I know you won't remember me but I am "E"'s daughter. I have so many wonderful memories of your Mom and a lovely Christmas note she sent me a year or so ago.
I am truly sorry for your loss. I know how much you will miss her. "E" passed away on December 22, 1994 and I still miss her.
I wish I had known about her passing I would have loved to have come to the Celebration of Life service.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely Sharon and Dave Breznik

On Christmas Eve we lost our beloved Nana. Nana was one of those people that everyone loved. She emitted this kindness about her that people were drawn to. In the 20 years I got to spend with her she truly changed me for the better. I will always treasure all the amazing times we had with her. From all the wonderful vacations, to Christmas mornings, to Sunday dinners. I think it’s so special the relationship she had with her grandkids like myself. It’s not very common that a bunch of 20 somethings can connect so well with a 97 year old. Nana was truly one of the most spectacular women I ever met. She was beautiful, graceful, smart and funny. When Nana smiled she lit up the room and that was true until the very end. My last day with her we held hands in the hospital and all she could do was smile at me and that smile meant everything to me. It warmed my heart and told me everything was going to be okay. Nana I will miss you forever but I’m so happy you were such a big part of my life. Night night Nana I love you.
Love Paige

Mrs “Skin” Skinner was a second mom to me. I remember Mrs. Skinner’s hello dollys, sandwiches with the crusts cut off, ice tea being served to us while we suntanned on the roof, sleepovers, drives up to Camp Kawabi so that Karen and I would get the “choice” bunks, camp care packages, and so many more sweet memories. You lived a wonderful life Mrs. Skinner, I’m sure you’ve joined a bridge club in Heaven. Love to Karen, Val and all your families. Wendy
