    candle 7Jennifer, Jeff and Jay, I’m so sorry to hear about Maria’s passing but like mom, she’s definitely in a better place now. It was always nice to see her and Ron come over to the house when Dee cut their hair and visit with them. You’ve been in my thoughts and prayers this week. ❤️🙏🏻

    So sorry for your loss, and sorry we weren’t able to attend the funeral mass today. The Bob Fleecs family is sending the parish a donation to have five masses said in Maria’s honor. She was such a joy to be around, many, many great memories! God bless you all!
