    I want to extend my sympathy to your family at this sad time. Regardless of how long we have our mother, it is hard to let them go.

    You will remember, that I worked at Waterloo surgical and medical group, where your dad practised. Therefore, I was called upon a couple times, to do more than just take x-rays! But it was always fun when I house sat, kid sat, and Auggie-dog sat at the Weyrauchs!! (I’m wondering if Rick still likes to play the game Risk!)  I was so pleased when I met up with you, Mary Jo, and your mom in the doctors office a few years back.  

    I will be thinking of you this weekend.  Your mom was such a sweet person with a pleasant smile and always so kind. (The beautiful picture in the paper is just how I remember her.)  I still have the Christmas tree ornament they brought to me from Norway and also the lovely gift from Japan. 

    My  sympathy and care to you, Lois (Brandt) Asche

    To Marion's you know being a nurse, that healing smile touched SO many lives and she gave of herself as often as she could. I watched her from afar and also received some of her blessings. I feel honored to have known Marion 🛐✨

    Dear Mary Jo, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of your mom. She was such a sweet caring person.. Although it's so hard to watch them grow old it's also hard to let them go.... Rob's mother(Mary Shirk) thought so highly of her and so enjoyed their visits. They were great friends for many years. I  will be out of town Saturday, but will stop by her Visitation Friday evening. Thinking of you at this sad time.
