I can not imagine how difficult the past few months have been but there are so many wonderful memories that can be remembered. I have many fond memories of Mary and I will never forget her laugh as she and Vern seemed to always have a smile to share whenever I had an opportunity to visit.

To all of Mary's family: We were so sorry to hear of Mary's passing so soon after Vern. We knew she had been ill, too. Your sorrow weighs heavily on us as we know they were very close and know that your family, even though richer for having had them, is poorer for having lost them. Always think of them as they are now, safe in Heaven, free of pain and with all their loved ones. Let the circle be unbroken. With blessings for all, The Wheelers, Chuck and Barb, Springfield, IL

My sympathy goes out to Kathy & Richard and to Rita & Jim. God bless you. This is my favorite saying. To Aunt Mary: "God loved you to much to be my friend so he made you my Aunt Mary". Rest in Peace my Aunt. I will always love you and never forget you!

Well Mom, I can see your beautiful smile. I know that you are with Dad and Rusty and all the other family members. I'm sure they are so glad to have you back with them, as I'm sure they have missed that smile. There were butterflies again yesterday after your beautiful service, just like there were after Dad's service. I'm sure you saw what a beautiful day it was. Today is another gorgeous day. The family left a little while ago. You remember how I told you we toasted Dad with Oyster Shots. Well, we toasted you last night after watching a video of you. In your honor we had Drambuee Shots. We also played a CD yesterday of your beautiful voice. It was so comforting. Everyone felt like you were still in the room with us. I will miss all your knowledge and wisdom of life. I will miss coming down and seeing you in the morning. I'll find that special place to go to and talk to you when I'm lonely. Give Dad and Rusty a hug from me. I miss you already and I LOVE YOU ALL!! Kathy
