Condolence & Memory Journal

My mom, Edith, and Ethel spent many summers together in Cecil County growing up. I only got to meet her a few times, but she was a treasure. Ethel and my mom are probably enjoying endless summers in heaven together.
My heart goes out for your loss.

I remember Ethel well, I was one of her care givers years ago. She was so proud of a Grandson that use to come stay or visit with her. She was such a pleasant lady to stay with. I have since moved to NC and will not be able to attend. Prayers and thoughts for the family.
