  2. Jerome and Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss and in this sad time I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers! All my love, Jenna

  3. Just wanted to extend our deepest sympathies at your time of sorrow. You all,including Minnie have been so wonderful to us since we moved in here. She took to Emmalee as if she were family & that made me feel so happy….sometimes I felt like she probably over stayed her welcome, but she always enjoyed the time she spent there even when there weren’t any other children to play. She would just watch a movie or just hang out with Minnie. I just wanted to share how awesome we think your whole family is & let you know how much she will be missed. Take care & God Bless, Kim, Emmalee & Jim

  4. To all of Minnie’s family, Anyone who knew her loved her!!! She was a kind, caring, considerate, full of life, fun loving person. She never let anyone leave her house hungry. She was one of the most sincere people I have ever met. What a great person she was. Now she will finally be with her husband, Jumbo, who we never met, but heard so much about. Her laughter resounded through the house! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers forever.

  5. Dear Friends: We wish to extend our deepest sympathy and prayerful support on the loss of your loving mother. Throughout the years our families were intertwined on various levels and it was always a joy to see your mother — full of life and full of faith. I personally hold her memory dear as I do also for your father. They were good fiends to my father, especially, and it was evident whenever they saw one another over the years. Now they are all with the Lord, and I am certain, laughing it up and having a grand time!

  6. Jim, Joyce, Angela and Dwight, You have our deepest and heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Minnie. Words can not begin to describe how we felt when we read on line of her passing.

May you rely on your faith during your time of grieving. Love and God Bless, Pete and Kathy

A special word to Jim: I loved those occassions growing up and playing together on Valley Way when your mom would put out her great cookies or fill the house with the wonderful smell of a spagetthi dinner cooking. What a wonderful talent she had in the kitchen! May the pleasant memories you created together give you comfort at this time. May God bless you all, Walt & Rita Tuchalski
