Dear Ron, I was Mary Seidler's youngest daughter. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your wife, Shirley. I, too, have lost my spouse, Marty, 3 years ago and I am still feeling the pain that you are now feeling. It is such a difficult emotion to go through that others really can't fully comprehend. Words will never be enough to express my sorrow for you. I am sure you have a huge empty place inside. May God take care of our departed loved ones for us now. I am sorry for your loss.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Dear Ron and Family, I, (Kathy Seidler Heintz) just left you a message of condolence. This message I am writing for my sister Paula, who graduated, I think, with Shirley. She is right now in Florida visiting friends for a few days and does not know of Shirley's passing. If she were home right now, I'm sure she would pay her condolences to you in person. She, too, has lost her husband, Gary, several years ago and she knows of the pain you are feeling. Please accept her sincere sympathy on your loss. Her prayers would be with you all.

We offer you the deepest sympathy in Shirley's passing. I had surgery on Thursday and came home from the hospital on Friday (yesterday). I am going to have to forego coming to the funeral and visitation. I am doing okay, but am needing to stay home and rest and recuperate. We wish you and the boys the best in the future. You know they say that time heals all wounds. This is very true. We will keep all of you in our prayers. The picture you put in the paper was truly Shirley. She always had a smile on her face. Love to you all. Joan
