Susan Mattfield

You were the best Mother I could have asked for. I love you so much my heart is broken without you. RIP my sweet Mother and when God calls I will be in your arms again.

My deepest heartfelt sympathies to the family of Susan Kastelic. I did not get to know her personally but went to St Peter Claver with her kids, Susie being my age, so I know the nice family she raised. Her grand-daughter Melissa also took loving care of my father in his last years. Your mother and grand-mother sounded like an amazing soul. My thoughts and prayers are with her whole family at this very sad time. God Bless and may she rest in the love and light of heaven.

Dear Patty and Fred, The loss of a parent is difficult at any time and when it occurs during the holidays it has to even be more difficult. Wes and I send our deepest sympathy to you. It sure sounds like your mom was a fun loving gal Patty and I'm sure you have lots of good memories. No matter our age or the age of our mom when she passes, it leaves a loss that's very deep.

Deborah Hewitt
