Ellen, I am so sorry for your loss.
May God’s grace give you peace.
Ellen and Ed,
So very sorry for your loss. Keeping you and your family in my heart and prayers.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have visited OLMLC every Wed for years for Hospice. I knew Rose, but I didn’t know she was your mother. She was a loving, thoughtful person and made others happy with her ready smile. She loved to join in during the “Sing Along Time.”
It was good to see your children’s names and I see they are married. I hope they are well and happy.
I’m sorry I wasn’t able to be with you for Rose’s services.
Love and prayers,
Sister Mary Frederick
