  1. I am so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Your mother was a wonderful lady. She always had a smile and a kind word. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. So sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. She was a good friend to my mom. They worked together for years and continued to get together for lunch after they both retired. Mary Evans

  3. I am sorry to hear of her passing. I took care of her at the hospital a few times and she was just the kindest woman. Thoughts to your family.

    I am saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember her from school and more recently from her Saturday shopping trips, at Meijer, with you.

    She will be missed.

    I remember Mrs. Hansen especially from my teen years when I spent lots of time at the house with Patty. It was comforting to me all these years that she still lived there and I was able to briefly visit with her a few years ago! She was still cool, calm and collected but I’m sure Patty and I tried her patience back “in the day!” My wishes for comfort to all. Mrs. Hansen: “A job well done!!”

  7. Patty and the rest of the family. Condolences on the loss of your Mother. I ride by her house and always admire her beautiful flowers. May you find peace in this time of sorrow.

  8. Kim, my thoughts are with you but know you will always have wonderful memories of your mother. We shared some good times working at North Ohio School.
