Life Stories

Aunt Fran,
Thank you for all your prayers during my accident. I know your prayers helped me walk today.
I remember talking to you often on the phone when you spoke to my Mom, Kathy. I also remember talking to you on the phone when I was at my Grandpa and Grandma's house (Joe and Peg).
You were always very interested in what I was doing with my life.
I know you will be watching over all of us with my Grandpa. Guess I better be on my best behavior :-)

To a beautiful Sister-In-Law who was more like a sister. Our treasured memories can never be taken away as they live in our heart.
Rest now, and forever live in our hearts!!!
You are perpetually remembered in our monthly masses.
Love You,
(wife of Joe Van Bogaert)
