    Dear Podesky Family,
    I wish you my sincerest sympathy on the loss of your mother. I only recently met her when she moved to Father Lacombe Nursing home but from our few visits I got a sense of strength and kindness which she radiated even though she was fighting such severe physical challenges. I am sure that she is much more at ease now in the company of God, with whom she had such a close relationship. Her earthbound physical limitations are all gone and she is finally at peace. I wish Patricia, Teresa and everyone else in Ann’s family my best wishes at this most difficult time.
    Sincerely, Barbara Skoreni
