I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. One encouraging thought you might find comforting is found at John 5:28, 29. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth! I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.

To the Wollenberg family,

I only knew Mary through field hockey, we never played each other but were on some committees together. She was a special lady.We talked about many things and she always had a smile and a kind word. She drove that bus so her teams got a chance to travel. It seemed she did for you her family and others whatever needed to be done. I was speaking about her with the wife of my assistant principal and she said that Mary was HER coach and she loved her. She will be very sorry for your loss Cathy
