    So sad to hear of Aunt Maggielee’s passing, but thrilled she is reunited with the gang! Uncle Jim, Uncle Tom, Aunt Georgeanne, Uncle Ed and Aunt Rose. They will dance thru eternity! Rest well sweet Aunt, you are missed by your extended South Bend family.

    Sympathy to Jane, Kathy, Jimmy and Kevin.

    Love,
    Maureen

    What a beautiful woman your Mom was. She loved you so much. 100 beautiful years. She is now with your Dad and so many loved ones and helping pave the beautiful road of gold until the day you, your sister and brothers join her and your Dad in the eternal resting place. Anytime you see a red cardinal that is her coming to say hello and that she is always watching over you all. Her sweet memories will in time comfort you.

    I am so sorry for your loss. 100 years on this earth is quite an accomplishment. Jane, I know how much you loved her and I’m praying comfort for you and your family during this difficult time. May the memories you share be a comfort to you all.
