  17. In Loving Memory of Kris Celich, Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister and Friend: God looked around His garden and found an empty space. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, and lifed you to rest. God’s garden must have be beautiful, for He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering. He knew that you were in pain. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered ‘Peace Be Thine.’ It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. Al, Libby, Samantha, Albert, and all of Kris’s family: Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Joan (Sargies) Aloupis

  18. Dear Al, Please know that you and the children are in my thoughts and prayers. Kris was taken from us too soon. May she rest peacefully in heaven. All my love to you, Therese
