  3. Your Mom was a true friend to Carl and Ruth. The Georges loved you three girls as if you were their own and they shared many sweet stories. It is never easy to say good bye, but I trust you may feel the love of God, family and friends surrounding you.
    Blessings, Jean Aberle

  4. Marty, Karen and Kathy, I'm so sorry for your moms passing but so relieved she's at peace. She was such a lovely, caring woman. She treated me so kindly when I was a little girl. I loved spending the night at your house. It was so calming. And I know a lot of that was your mom. My mother thought the world of her, too. Many many memories this morning. Lots of swimming off the dock and our boats and sleepovers. I love you and look forward to seeing you soon. Xo. Praying for peace for all of you. :heart:
