  1. Karen, I am so sorry for your loss. Love and prayers for all you are going through. Your family at Sacred Heart loves and misses you.

  2. Aunt Vi was a beautiful lady with a laugh that filled the room. She is the last of our elders to join the Lord which makes sense. She was small but mighty and I will miss her very much. She is now hanging with all of our loved ones that went before her and they are enjoying her laugh again.

    God bless you sweet lady, love you very very much.


  3. Karen,
    I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom and all that you’re going through. You took such good care of her. We miss you at Sacred Heart. Prayers of comfort and peace for you.
