    Jennifer and Family,

    We were so very sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. She and Shirley (Berlin’s mom) were roommates at King’s Daughters’ Rehab. Ctr. some years ago, and I always enjoyed talking with your mom when I visited. Edith always looked after Shirley (even tucking her into bed at night), which was so sweet. May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time.

    Jennifer & Family,

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was a big part of my life for many years…enjoyed staying at your house and eating all the good food she prepared…remembering all the laughter and good times. The world will be a little dimmer now without your mom’s bright light shining…but the stars will be a little brighter.
