Jill & Family,

My Deepest Sympathy to you and your Loved ones. May your Mother Rest in the Presence of God and may He welcome her into the Kingdom of Heaven to once again be with the Tucker's/Henkel's that have passed before her. Though I never had the pleasure of meeting your Mom, she raised a wonderful daughter and I am sure your siblings, as well!

I am working in NJ this week so I will not be able to pay my respects, but, please know I will be praying for your family!
