Hi. I am so so shocked and saddened to hear about your mom. I worked with your mom about 2 years ago at BOCES in Goshen. I was the teacher in the classroom and she was a wonderful one on one aid to one of our students. I only learned of your mom's passing yesterday. I apologize. I certainly would've attended the services if I had known. Your mom is someone that I will never ever forget. Every single day she shared stories about you three girls. You were her life. She loved you more than anything in the world. She was also someone who, despite difficulties and real struggles that she had to deal with, she was the most positive person I've ever met. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jeanne Lusignan.

Girls, You are the very best daughters in the world. Your mom was a beautiful sweet, loving mother, the best of mothers. I am blessed to have known your mom. She has been such a blessing to my family. You all have been such a blessing to my family. May you feel God pouring out His and her very special love on you each day. We are praying for you!

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. I was shocked & saddened to learn of her demise. I can still see her at my cabin hideaway in NJ with her mom and siblings. Years later, we met again when she was married with children. Her gentleness and love for all in life that is GOID will be remembered. She has forever touched many lives. It is an honor to have known her...
