I was saddened to hear that you lost your mother. You have a beautiful family because who she was...a strong yet caring person. Celebrate her life as she looks down on you. God Bless

Dear Merayah and Theresa's entire family,
YOU my friend were the best Granddaughter that any Grandmother could wish for. Know that all the memories that you shared together will give you comfort in the many years to come. You took wonderful care of her and believe me she was so grateful for it. You were her shining light, she adored you! She was an adorable lady and I will miss seeing her smiling face. God bless you Mommom.

Growing up on Earlington Avenue was so special. We were all so blessed to grow up in that place, at that time. I have so many fond memories of your mother... I can't even begin to name them all. Her devotion to her family was a testimony of her love you all... From Mom-mom, Jack, her children and grandchildren and I'm sure her greatgrands... May that love and your wonderful memories of your mother bring you all much comfort and peace.

Dear Groppenbacher/Creedon Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I was blessed to have known Aunt Terry and to have a chance to hang out with the family at Lake Hurff and Wenonah Lake. My, she sure did like the beach and swimming! Memories of Terry always bring a smile to my face. I will truly miss her!

Today is the saddest day of my life. Terry was one of my best friends since high school. We enjoyed each other, shared a love of sports, our trips to Stone Harbor, & the YMCA. Memories that I will never forget! I am sorry I will not be able to come pay my respects to her loving family. But, as you know, I lost my son, Gary, the same time that we lost Terry. God bless you all.

Love

Norma & family
