    Karen, My condolences on the passing of your mom. I think you should recognize that she had the highest quality of life available to her and she was grateful for everything that you and the family did to make that happen. Remember the good times in her life and share the stories often with your family and friends.

    I most sincere condolences. Have such fond memories of your mom while at Indiana. She made me feel more comfortable in my new dorm room and then again at the sorority house. She had a soft gentle kindness to her that took away all of my homesickness and sense of uneasiness. Of course spending time at your house she was always warm and inviting. Truly so sorry for your loss. May her memory be for a blessing

    Mr Lauwasser I wish to express my deepest sympathies on your wife’s passing. My parents always thought the world of their friends the Lauwassers, and I hope you can take some measure of comfort knowing they are sending their condolences and are with you. I think of them often, and learning of Esther’s passing brings back a flood of childhood memories. I hope she gets to now say hello to them, and that I have a chance to see you in the near future. May Esther’s memory be a blessing.
