One Condolence for “TETTJE WYNIA”

    Nancy your mom was in the room beside my mom’s, Isobel, on 5th West. Mom passed away July 22 @ St Joseph’s. It was so nice to be able to have a chat with you the night you had finished your shift and stopped in to visit your mom before you went home. I was very sorry to read of your mother’s passing. I know not matter how long they have been on this earth or how long we’ve had then it is still difficult to say goodbye. I can only pray they are in a better place free from pain. I definitely would have attended your mom’s service had I still been in the Hat. Sending prayers and condolences to you and your family
