My deepest sympathy and prayers to both Jessica and Brian. I remember you from the time you lived in Plymouth. Your mom was always there to help me out with the babysitting and your Dad well he helped out with anything he could. They were both exceptional people and I am better for having known them both. I hope that you and your brother are doing well and if you feel comfortable sending an email to tell me so that would be wonderful. I know they are happy together so thats all that matters. take care, Jessica

I miss you Grandma. I hope you are doing well in heaven. Hopefully you are feeling better. I''m trying to picture you wearing a Harley Davidson jacket in heaven with Grandpa. You better not be riding around on a Harley! By: Paulie

It was an honor to get to know Deb. She was all about her family. She did not fear death as she explained her own near death experience and the sense of peace it had given her. She regretted not having more time with you. There is a Native American chant that goes, ''May the Great Spirit grant you peace of mind, may the peace be there in everything you find, may the peace be there in all you leave behind.'' And so I wish this for all of you who loved Deb and now grieve. When that cloud is lifted just a little, may you find peace of mind. You were loved and you loved, that is the highest achievement we can obtain.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We miss you so much, Mom. Every night is more lonely and everyday is hard to face. I will be brave and I will go on like I promised you, but there is not a day you are not on my mind...if there is something beyond this, I hope your new life brings you the light and happiness this life did not always...I will always love you. Your son, Brian

To the Ponce Family You have my deepest sympathies. I want you to know that we are standing with you in your time of sorrow. Let the tears roll, for I believe they are healing, let the memories linger for they will Keep her living within your heart. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. Remember we are here for you all. Love always Prentise.
