Condolence From: Denise Buczek
Condolence: My heartfelt thoughts go out to Kitty (and George's) family. I was so very surprised to hear of her passing.

She and George were dear friends to Paul and I. We will always cherish their visit to Neptune Beach, FL in April 2000 (see the photos in the Memories).

With endless energy and capacity to love, Kitty was an amazing woman truly ahead of her time. An inspiration to myself and so many others, she will be greatly missed. I know George is smiling to have her sharing his heavenly home now.

May the family take comfort in knowing that her kind and generous soul changed the world of so many.

In celebration of Kitty's life - we toast her!

Denise Buczek and Paul Blanchard

Condolence From: CSA
Condolence: Condolences to your family. One may think we will all be forced to confront death sooner or later. Its painful sting has caused many people to search for answers. Why did Jesus compare death to sleep? What can we learn from resurrections recorded in the Bible? Does death end it all? Acts 24:15 says there will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous. Can you imagine the joy of Martha and Mary when Jesus raised Lazarus back to life?—Read John 11:21-24, 38-44. Revelation 21:3,4 promises that one day death, mourning, and outcry will be no more.

Condolence: My dear Janet,
I am so very sorry that your mother has passed. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My mother passed in 1992, and I still miss her. However, every time I see a red cardinal, or a dragaonfly, or a butterfly, I feel her love.
Love you, Janet.
