    Dear David, Dennis, Jamie & Tom. I offer you my sincere condolences on the passing of your mom. Although we have been far apart and visits have been far to few I will always remember Auntie Dell while growing up. Her smile was contagious and her love of her family was apparent in everything she did. Her memories will live on not only with her immediate family but also with those whose lives she has influenced. I wish that everyone in the family can focus on great memories and take joy in remembering the little things that made Auntie Dell who she was. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Norm, Suzanne, Anna and Lyla.

    Dear Dennis and Family:

    We were sorry to hear that your mother has passed away and offer our condolences. We usually sat in the pew in front of your parents whenever we attended St. Patrick's Parish. Mr. Mudrack (I could never bring myself to call him Nick) was such a tease whenever he saw us and he came to hold a very special place in our hearts. My favorite memory of your mom was her always leaning forward and laughing and saying "I'm sorry. I can't do a thing with him" as she rolled her eyes. The quiet pride she felt in her family and grandchildren was clear. While we are sorry for your loss, we are happy that Mr. & Mrs. Mudrack are together again. What a happy reunion that would have been.

    Stan and Wendy

    Sarah and I are sending our love to you David, Dennis, Jamie and Tom and the rest of the family during this difficult time. We were lucky to have seen her a few times over the past few years and she always had a huge smile and showed great interest in the family. She was so cute and lovable. She loved you all so much and was proud to share funny stories about you. She knew how to talk to anyone and I remember laughing when she would tell me about something she had read. She was loved and will be greatly missed. We look forward to being together with you guys again. May God give you some comfort and peace to know that she was loved by all who knew her.
