    It has been such a struggle each day, since you decided to go home to Heaven! It is so hard to imagine life without you! I am so blessed that we got to be with you, hold you, and kiss you goodbye. In these trying times so many loved ones could not be together! I am relieved that you are no longer suffering in pain! Jesus welcomed you Home! We will be together one day! Until then…I have wonderful memories to get me through! I love you so much! Your Daughter, Mary ❤️❣️

    It has been a week since your passing and I miss you more each day. I reached for the phone to call you and realized you were gone. I had a nightmare last night and called out your name. These hard times for your girls. We are sticking together giving comfort to each other. We are remembering you and keep you safely in our hearts. I love you so very much, Mom. Its hard to think of life without you. Its hard to think how we will go on. Then remember your words, “The day is alwars darker before the dawn” and “This too shall pass”. So I know in remembering your words and looking up to the sky and see your brilliant star shining, I will make it because I am “your Patti”
    p.s. Im sorry Mom that I left Kelly Krahn out of the obituary. It was a terrible oversight on my part. I hurt for that. We all know how much you loved Kelly! And we know he loved you!
