Dear Gabe, Justin, Jordyn, Maddy, Camryn, and Lane, I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother/mother-in-law/grandmother. I understand that it hurts and feels like she is lost, but remember that she is not lost. She has been found by God and is at peace in Heaven. Keep alive the wonderful traditions she passed down to all of you and the wonderful memories of her. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of my father. When I find myself thinking about the time he was dying, I remind myself that he never would want me to remember him that way. So I think of a happy memory of him. So remember all those wonderful memories to help you through this very difficult time. I have you all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless All of You! With Sympathy, Stephanie Berry

I am so saddened to hear that Kathy passed away. Kathy and I were good friends in grade school (Cathedral). I still have memories of our cheerleading days and the few times I spent the night at her big house on Mascoutah Avenue. I was so disappointed that we did not attend the same high school and we lost touch. Kathy has always been in my heart and thoughts and will continue to be in my heart and thoughts, as she was an important part of my childhood. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Kathleen & I worked together in the lab at Stag Brewery. She was a good friend. We enjoyed spending time together as families outside of work. We remember very well what a cute little girl Gabe was back then. We are very sad.
