A loving thank you, Mother, for the thoughtful things you've done. Without expecting special words of praise from anyone, for making home a happier place than words can ever tell, for understanding problems and for solving them as well, for being patient all those times when you were tired too- but mostly, thank you, Mother, for simply being you. Groce Funeral Home at Lake Julian is assisting the family.
