To all the family and friends of Mrs Smidowicz, please accept my sincere condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that the Almighty God has the power to end death forever and yearns to bring back to life all those who have fallen asleep in death. (1 Corinthians 15:26; Acts 24:15)

Dear Kathy, Joe & Family:
We know we join many others in expressing our sadness, our sympathy, and our feelings to all of you on the loss of your beautiful Mother. To say she was a special lady would truly be an understatement, as using the word "special" to describe her doesn't even come close to painting the true picture of the wonderful woman she was. She loved life and was blessed to have the health and good care you provided to be able to enjoy that life for a very long time. Your blessing was that you had her with you all of those years, and you must know that you were responsible for much of her longevity, her happiness, her ability to impart her wisdom to your children and grandchildren, and so much more. You provided not only for her physical well being but more important her emotional and mental well being as she always knew how much she was loved. Our only regret is that we didn't get to meet her sooner in our lives so that we could have enjoyed spending time with her for many more years than we did. Though it is never easy to lose someone we love so dearly, please rest assured that you did everything possible and well above and beyond to allow her to enjoy her life and to allow the rest of us to enjoy her. God bless you all....
