  1. I am standing on the seashore. A ship in the bay lifts her anchor, spreads her white sails to the morning\’s breeze and starts out upon the ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch her until she hangs like a speck of white cloud, just where the sea and sky mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says: .There, she\’s gone.. Gone where? Gone from view, that is all. Just at that moment, there are other eyes watching her coming and other souls taking up the glad shout: .There, she\’s coming.. And that is dying. We wish we could be there with everybody. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Deb, Don, Kayla and Kristen

  2. To the remaining sisters – once there were so many to love and to learn about life with. How lucky you were to be surrounded by so much family love. How sad it must be now to be parted from all of that. To the children and grandchildren – Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I am looking forward to a time, way in the future, when we will have a huge reunion in the afterlife. Our love to you all, Ann & Bob Wolf
