    Nick, Kaye and Family-

    There’s magic in a Mother’s/Grandmother's touch, and sunshine in her smile. There’s love in everything she does to make our lives worthwhile. We can find both hope and courage just by looking in her eyes. Her laughter is a source of joy, her works are warm and wise. There is a kindness and compassion to be found in her embrace and we see the light of heaven shining from a Mother’s face.”   Author Unknown  We share comfort in knowing Evie is no longer suffering.  We send thoughts of sympathy and support to you as you begin your journey without her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a wonderful lady with great character.

    Children and grandchildren continue the legacy their mothers begin. Your mother has built a strong legacy that we know will continue on.

  2. Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow.   Robert Louis Stevenson
  3. Peace, Prayers and Blessings, Ken & Lisa Ciesielski
