My deepest sympathy to all of the Litzenberg family.  Although I never met grandma Litz in person, I feel I knew her in spirit through all the wonderful stories and memories Erin has shared with me, and continues to share today.  May those memories never fade but become a cherished part of everyday life!

You children all know how much your mom ment to me.  She and Ross and Darrell and I , the memories are so great, and to write about them, would fill a book.  I will cherish them always. When Mary and I went to Hawaii, we had a ball.  Did so many things. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sorry I could not come down, due to the weather conditions.  Love you always.  Ginny

Dear Shawna,
Our deepest sympathies to you and your family in the loss of your grandmother.  No doubt your grandfather and Shelley was there to greet
her upon her arrival.  We know that this leaves a terrible void in your
life.

We are praying that Our Heavenly Father will draw you close to Him for that
is where you will find true comfort and peace.  If there is anything we can
do, please let us know.

We love you, but Jesus loves you so much more!

Thinking of you all. Aunt Mary was such a special person. We so enjoyed our visits with her--she was so proud of you all and always showed us her wall of family photographs. We are in Oregon with Jude & Wendy & the boys now. When Carol called to say we had lost your Mom/Grandma, we were in a room overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As the waves rolled in below, with the Yaquina Head lighthouse marking a cliff in the distance, I thought of how much Aunt Mary loved to travel and what a beautiful painting she would have made of the scene beyond. She was so talented, energetic, and fun--and such an important part of my childhood. My heart is with you during this very sad time.

WIth love,

Jean & Chris
