ToJack and his wonderful family my heartfelt condolences to all. I go back a long way back to Richland Park in Richardson where we were neighbors. What a joy it was when we again met at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. She asked me to help with the Altar Guild and has been a wonderful friend who will be greatly missed. Eileen was always so cheerful and we will miss her beautiful smile. May all the happy memories sustain in this grieving period. But remember, you all have an angel in heaven who will praying for you. This will be a great consolation! You are in my thoughts and prayers. Toni Gehrlein

Dear Karen, Matt, and the Divita family. I am so sorry for your loss. Life is forever different, but, life never stops. Your mom lives on in her legacy of her children, and her grandchildren. Karen, you are a shining example of what a parents love can give to this world, and you have given it back, not only to your own family, but to your mom, and also to Jack. My prayers to you for what you are going through. She is in a better place, and will be with you forever. Persevere and continue paying it forward. My love to all of you.
