Dear Marv, You have always been so devoted to Firl. I have loved you for your loyalty. After Sheila telephoned me Friday evening I was sad as I reflecting on Firl's life being cut short. It seemed that the youngest should not die before the older, when I was filled with this overwhelming feeling of joy and happiness. I felt that our Mother rejoiced in their reunion. I'm sure Mother is giving her the royal tour. I remember riding with Firl from Iowa to Omaha, Nebraska. Janie, Baby Joseph, and Micah were seated in the back. Firl and I sang all the old songs we had memorized as kids, "Always", the "Dollie With A Hole In Her Stocking", "I'll Be Seeing You", and so many many more. Janie said it was such fun for her to hear us sing together, for hours, all those old songs. I remember hanging up washed socks on a wire fence to dry, when little Firl said her first word. I ran with her into the house to have her repeat "Dada" to our mother. At the time it seemed like a miracle!
Dear Aunt Firl, I loved you for your kindness in making homemade chicken soup for me on Thanksgiving far from home. You gave up your own bed that I might be comfortable. Bless you. May you be at peace.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Firl was so wonderful. I have many fond memories of getting together when we lived in Ohio and your family was also in the mid-west. I also remember Firl teaching me how to French braid hair. I loved being able to braid my daughter Laceys hair! Firl seemed to have a calming influence about her which I loved. I know she is loved and missed.
I will miss my youngest sister. Marv, You have been a great husband and friend to Firl. She is now at peace and free from pain. She will be greatly missed.
Marv - So sorry to hear about Firl. You are both in my prayers and I hope you are doing well. May your warrior spirit get you through this loss.
We are sorry to learn of your loss. Mary Jane was always so loving and kind to us. We were unable to make it to the viewing, but want to let you know that our prayers are with you.
