In loving memory of Mary A. Grissinger, who went to be with her Lord 10 years ago, October 26, 1998:
We'll Never Say Goodbye We cannot see you with our eyes,
dear Mom, Or hear you with our ears But, thoughts of you are with us still And often dry our tears You whisper in the rustling leaves That linger in the fall, And in the gentle evening breeze, We're sure we hear your call A part of you remains with us That none can take away It gives us strength to carry on At dawning of new day We think of happy times we've shared And then we softly sigh But this we know We'll meet again And never say goodbye.
Sadly missed by
Steve, Karen, Amy
In memory of Mary Grissinger: Dear Mary,
It seems impossible that it's been 10 years since you left this earth to be with Bob, Mark and our parents.
I had a hard time getting used to not picking up the phone and calling you when something happened that concerned our family - like a new baby or a relative that died or some achievement someone reached.
Many times I would have loved to sit down and talk to you just like we had done almost every day for so many years. I can remember you playing the piano for church and how proud you would be that Amy is carrying on that tradition. I know how you would love the new greatgrandbabies that you got. Bob and you loved your family very much and would help them any way you could.
You loved your job at school and I'm sure the kids loved you. Ruth often tells me that when she was sick and Gladys needed care, you went to her house and helped her out. I'm sure you would be proud of Karen and the caring nurse she became and Steve for fixing up our homeplace into a beautiful home.
I know how alone you felt after Bob passed away after years of marriage. We're glad you don't have the cares of this world, but we still miss you and always will until the day you're there to greet us when we go to our heavenly home.
Love always, Your sister, Helen
