    What if the brilliant, twinkling stars that bring the dark night sky to life are windwos looking out of heaven? And at that very moment when we’re wishing on those stars, hoping that the loved ones we have lost are happy, safe and free. Maybe they are looking at those same stars from the other side, making the same wish for us, sending us all their love. I’m wishing you the comfort of loving memories and the the feeling that you’ll alway be connected to one so close to your heart.
    Teresa and Jim… Just want you to know that I am keeping you in prayer at this very difficult time. I lost my dad 20 years ago on June 30th.

    Dear Lukes kids,
    Dewayne Collins called me about your mom – he had heard it from a Jambor relative that lives in or near Mora. I am so sorry to hear this. I will keep watching this site to see when Betty’s services are and will cerainly try to be there. If not, just rest assured that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I loved your mom – she exemplified a true wife and mother.
