Mr. Thompson, Judy, Mark and Matt, 
Please know that Jim and Tina and Mike and I are thinking of you. We have so many wonderful, happy memories of the years that we spent together as neighbors and friends. We truly cherish every one of them. Perhaps right now our loved ones in Heaven are chatting and remembering all of those happy times!
My warmest condolences,
Barbara Work

Mr Thompson, Judy, Matt and Mark, I am so sorry to hear about Mrs Thompson. You have my deepest sympathies and prayers. She was a great person and I have many fond memories of her. All my love, Stephanie(Gegg) Bradshaw

  As a fellow resident of Willow Valley Manor, it always blessed me to see Kim and Jack walking, hand in hand, to and from the dining room. Jack always treated Kim with tenderness and Kim was always smiling her beautiful smile. 
    When the time came for Kim to move to healthcare at The Glen, Jack would spend a large part of his day with her.    I was never quite sure how much she understood when I spoke to her; her face would make some responses but she didn’t speak.  The one constant was her beautiful smile. 
     I’m sorry that I didn’t know her when she was younger.  I’m sure she was a lovely and delightful person.   You don’t get a smile like that if you’re not.
     My condolences to Jack and the family. May God bless you all with wonderful memories of Kim and give you peace.  My prayer is that she is now safe and free in the arms of Jesus and enjoying the beauty of Heaven; healthy and happy again with an even more beautiful smile.  May the LORD be with you all and comfort you at this time.
                                   In Jesus precious love,
                                       Carol Rappaport (c-310)
