Condolence & Memory Journal

Grandma, I wish I got to know you more. I wish I wasn't so self-obsessed at that time, when I had the chance to better know you. I know you're in heaven with Grandpa, and I can't wait to see you one day.

I sure miss you Mom. During the day, I am about the business of living life, but at night I think about you often. Thank you for everything you did for us. Thank you for loving us unconditionally. We all love and miss you very much.

With my deepest sympathy. To lose a mother is to lose part of your soul. God be with all of you.

I regret very much that I never got a chance to meet Mrs. Siefferman. I have been a close friend to Eric for almost 40 years and heard countless charming stories about his mom. I know second hand what a special person she was. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of great loss.
