Mike, Tim & families, I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of your mom, Merrill and my parents together over the years. Especially Friday nights at the VFW. I will always remember her kindness, sense of humor and her beautiful smile. She will be missed. Gail (Fitzer) & Bill Carli

Mike and Tim
My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your Mom. Though I didn't know her well, I remember her as a warm and kind person. I had a chance to speak with her at Fr. Gerold's funeral and we had a lovely conversation - I was so impressed with her. In sympathy

Joanne was such a sweet and kind woman. I'll never forget the first time she decided to join the Chorale group - she was shy and afraid she wouldn't fit in. Boy did she ever fit in. Funny, kind, sweet, just a few words to describe this wonderful woman. We were so sad to see her leave choir and move away. But Joanne was always in our thoughts and prayers.
Rest in God's loving arms Joanne and say Hi to my husband when you see him in Heaven. Hugs to Joanne's family.

Joanne was a lovely person. She always had a smile and a nice thing to say about everyone. I enjoyed being her friend. God Bless her and welcome her into Heaven.
