To Stan and family,
Our mothers hold a special place in our hearts and have been such a blessing in our lives and will continue to bless us with precious memories even now and in the future. I pray that peace and comfort comes soon during this season of grief. I am praying that the Lord strengthen you and your family with his love and grace. Death has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal and weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5

To Steve, Jim, and the rest of the Wiles family - Please accept my condolences and prayers for your mother and your family. The Wiles family may have been right on the border of the South Side and Pleasant Township but thankfully you were on the Pleasant side of the border. I remember being at your house as a young boy and hunting for chicken eggs around the property, I remember the times at Pleasant Township and how involved your mother was in your lives and in ours as well. I remember her being my den mother in scouting. Years later I got to see her again now and then through my involvement with Dr. Gabreski's practice. What a wonderful woman she was.

So saddened to learn of the passing of my wonderful Cub Scout den mother. I remember her as a very kind and caring lady. She was a devoted servant who aided in the moral development of many, many young men. Rest in peace, den mom.
