Also a special note to Jim and Michelle Bain and family, you were there for whatever she needed. Above all, we want to extend our deepest gratitude and love to Laura Pelky, mom’s special angel for the past 5 years. You were more than a caregiver, you will always be a part of our family.
Mother, you showed us how to love deeply and grow our faith daily. Heaven is celebrating that God brought his child home! She is singing with the angels. I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!!!
