    Kathy and I send our deepest condolences.

  2. Jeri and Dale Miller condolence:

    Dear Gregg and Karen, we are crying with you even as we watch you lovingly release her to our God. I was so lucky to have her as my Aunt and Godmother. She was always positive and encouraging. We love you both, Bob and his beautiful kids and Jim . I sure treasure my memories of time with the family when we were at The Lake, Bedford, and tolerating my hyper younger self when us Spillane kids invaded and slept in your tent trailer! She is with our other dear ones in Gods Big House. Dale lived her too and always enjoyed his visits with her. Love, hugs, faith, trust. Jeri and Dale
