I have to write something? Are there any words to say at times like these? I wish I could be there for you, in body not just in spirit. She will be greatly missed, but praise God we will see her again!
Dear Jane and Family,thinking of you during this time and praying for comfort for all of you. Your Mom sounded like a lovely lady – I know you will miss her here but take comfort in knowing that she is with the Lord and rejoicing in heaven.
We are praying for you and the family, Jane. We have lovely memories of being in your home and spending time with your mother as well. May God`s grace and comfort be yours in the days ahead. Love ya!
On the behalf of all USF-I J6/TC4I Iraq, we all send our deepest sympathy to the Palmer family during your time of sorrow. Stay strong and you all will be in our prayers.
To my cousins Jane,Earl,Steve and Tom, So many great memories of family holidays and church events with you and your Mom and Dad. Auntie always had a smile for all. We will miss her. Love to all your families, Carol
We have great memories of Maxine and we know she will be missed..Jane you did such a great job taking care of her too. You guys are all in our prayers.
My prayers are with the family who loved and cared for Maxine. She is with the Lord, and in that we can rejoice.
Dear Jane, I just want you to know that I am thinking of you and praying for you during this difficult time. I knew your mom as a kind and caring lady even though I met her after she was already having symptoms of Alzheimer`s. It doesn`t make the loss – the missing – any easier, but it is reassuring to know that she is now fully healed and whole in our Heavenly Father`s arms! You and your family are in my prayers.
Jane and Family, It was a joy to be one of many that cared for your mom. I will remember all the time her and I sang together. I am so sorry for your loss and didn`t know that she had passed. I wish I could have been there for you. May God Bless you all. Thank you for the beautiful picture of Maxine. Love,Pat Beales CNA
