I know I am going to miss all the long talks we use to have and going to get your hair done every Thursday, standing appointment, and your nails every 5 weeks. You always look forward to those appointments and I always made sure you got there for them.  Lunch out either in or in the car and our road trips to Muncy to see the grand kids.  I have grown so close to you since you came  to live with me during your declining years. Its going to be hard to adjust to not having your here.  Your room feels empty now, and I get it, God wanted you to come home to be with him, and I know you have been talking about how much you miss your Mom and Sister, not to mention you never really let me she the hurt you carried over the lost of Marty 2 months ago.   You were a strong woman and I love you dearly and know someday I will see you again.  Thank you for being my role model, I too am a strong woman and have passed it onto my daughter and grand kids.  I know beyond a doubt your more alive then you were here on Earth and you have a new body and new eyes and can see all the beautiful faces in Heavenly things God has in store for all of us when we get there.  God Bess, and thank you for being my MOM.

Sandy - I am so sorry that I missed your Mom's obituary and just now realized she had passed away.  I also did not know that Marty was gone until I read her obituary. 
Hoping that you all are OK and can carry on - Thinking of you,
Phyllis M. Boehm
