  4. Dear Fran,
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet mother. There are no words to console you at this difficult time. I did not know her, but in knowing you feel she was a remarkable woman. She raised a wonderful daughter. You and your family are in my prayers.

  5. I did not know Lil that well, but during our brief acquaintance, it was most obvious that she was an extraordinary person ~ She left a grea-a-a-a-t impression on everyone she encountered. The Lord took her to Himself ~ Death is truly God’s greatest gift ~ that’s why he saves it til the very end.

    So-o-o-o-o sorry for your loss, but happy that you have a very special angel watching over her family, whom she loved very much, and will continue to do so.

    Sincerely with deepest sympathy,
    Karol Fischer

  6. I am so very sad to hear of Ms. Columbo’s passing. She was the sweetest neighbor for 22 years, always smiling, happy to chat, and eager to share cookies and donuts with the neighbors. She was also one the strongest women I had met, seeing her outside working in the yard, shoveling snow (even when we offered). You will be missed, Ms. Columbo. Thank you for your kindness. May you rest in peace.
