Tony, Sorry to hear about your Mom. Every day memories will come to you. When you look up to the sky on a starry night, see the brightest star. That's your Moms twinkle in her eyes as she looks down on you and your family. She'll be by your side always! God be with you!

Mom told me yesterday of Germaine's passing. Mom is in a memory care facility and although her short term memory is not good, she has many fond "old" memories of your mother. I wish I had known sooner so I could have brought her to the funeral service. Condolences to all of you.

My sympathies to you all. I will always remember Germaine for her easy smile, beautiful flowers and always welcoming us on a hot summer day to enjoy the swimming pool as kids!

Deb, Bonnie, Tony & Dan, It's difficult, I know, but you have so many great memories to share. Your Mom accomplished so much. Now it's her turn to rest and meet up again with your Dad. I always enjoyed our visits to the Kempen family farm, especially going in the "basement" for eggs!! And the old phone in the hallway that we had to dial Forest Junction 8F2 to reach.
