Dear Cindy and Family:
My most sincere and heartfelt condolences to all of you at this time of loss. I will keep you in my prayers for God to send you Peace and Healing…
To my dear friend Cindy, my heart and prayers to you and your family. The first time
I met your mother, I thought she was funny, told me a few stories, and was a wonderful
person. I also felt I knew her for the last 15 or so years I’ve known Cindy, because she always talked and told stories of her mom. She will surely be missed. Just remember all the good memories and stories to tell.
God bless her, she’s at peace.
Lit a candle in memory of MaryAnn Mortl
Mary Ann was my big sister who, for all my life, was there to take care of me (even when she had her own 6 children). She was always available with a smile, a laugh, a hug, a word of confidence (which God knows I needed). I always wanted to be just like her as I saw her so pretty and going to work at the Gas Company, her learning to drive, getting married to her best friend, having a family, learning to sew, cook, be happy and content. At yearly “sister” outings, Mary Ann and Judy had to endure wearing the Sister shirts I bought for all of us to represent our sisterhood and I think she finally learned to enjoy that or she did it just for me, which would be just like her to do. She would “do” for anyone but even with all that generosity she showed, God gave her physical ailments that she endured over and over. But even with the pain she endured, she never gave up on God’s Will for what he had in mind for her. I know that He has her with Him now with no more pain but only sunlight and happiness. She will now be a guardian angel for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and in my heart, I know she’s still looking out for me…. because she’s my big sister. I will always love her and if I can show half the strength she’s shown in her life, I know she’ll be proud of me.
