Dear Dan and Family,

The death of one’s mother, the passing of a matriarch is a deep loss, which requires paying witness. In the midst of such sadness, we make an effort to do our best in the absence of the one we love so much. And thereby, we honor her life and move her memory forward. The continuation of life slowly marches onward, and through the practice of grieving we work on our essential healing.

At such a difficult time, take heart in the deep caring of others. We stand beside you in heartfelt spirit.

Love,

Tom, Holly, Hannah, Ivy and Sidney Huber

David and Lee Ann and the Winstel Family. Debbie and I wish to send our thoughts and prayers on the passing of your Mom. I remember her back in the St. Michael days. She was so good to me when my mother died when I was twelve. I remember her always wanting to know if i was hungry when I visited with David. Even though we lost touch I will always remember those times.
