    To the Reik Family,

    Our mother is our first connection to this world and I am saddened to hear of the loss of your mother. Hearing stories from Andrea she sounds to have been strong determined woman with much humor. It appears that she raised two strong daughters to share this trait with their families.

    I wish you and your families comfort in these coming days and months. May her spirit be with you in memories.

    Dick and Sheila

    Dear Paula and Family, It’s been many years since your Mom gave me one of my first starts at work {through school} at “The Flower Basket”. I will always be grateful for the opportunity to work with you and your Mom. You both were to be admired for your hard work ethics and giving a “kid” a chance. Though I am now a mailman, I often think back fondly of those days and what a great lady your Mom was. Please except my deepest condolences to You and Yours.

    Dear Paula and Andrea,
    My father, Bill Schindler, and I send our condolences. He and my late mother, Helen, were very good friends of your parents. You probably remember them. I remember your mom from all the parties at our house(when I was younger), and from the flower shop. She was so nice and always smiling! We will miss her. Our deepest sympathy!

    May you find the courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today. At this time of sorrow may these truths sustain you…..your loved one will always be as close as a memory
    and the God of all comfort is always as close as a prayer. It will be the little things that you will remember the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memory of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

  18. Marian on September 21st, 2009 4:17 pm

    Andrea, my dear buddy,

    I have some idea of how rough the road has been for you and Paula the last few years, but it’s never easy to lose your mother. Mom died just this time last year, so I’m feeling very close to you as you deal with all the emotion of this time. Love and miss you!

    Andrea and family,

    I just learned of the death of your mother. Being a mom is one of the most difficult things we do on this earth. God gave mom’s a tough job. I know that you appreciate this more than ever as a mother yourself. Remember the good times with your mom and the character traits that you got from her that have sustained you in hard times. I am thinking of you and praying for you and will continue to do so as you have to take care of the business that comes after you say goodbye. I will be praying for peace and for unity with your sister in your decisions. May God bless you at this time.

Please share your thoughts ...
