Please accept my condolences as you mourn the loss of your mother. She was a lovely lady. She was always congenial and complimentary to me when I sang at church. As I watched each of you grow to be such a credit to society and to your parents, it only served to remind me what a wonderful mother she was to all of you. My thoughts are with you today as you recall the years past and the love she gave to you.

Sincerely,
Pauline Oehler

We are so sorry to learn of your Mom's passing.  We hope it is some comfort knowing she enjoyed a long life in which she was rewarded with a wonderful, loving, successful family, of which she was very proud.  I remember her fondly patiently sitting and her sweet smile at hours upon end watching hog shows at Marion and the State Fair...always helpful in her quiet way and always with a smile or kind word.  I know you'll miss her presence, but know that others are hoping the many good memories will bring you comfort during this time.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
