Condolence & Memory Journal

Ken. I am sorry for your loss. I hope your family can support each other with good memories of your dear mother. A mother of four sons surely became someone who was special.

My deepest condolences to your family and friends. As the saying goes, "They don't make 'em like that anymore!" She was great, from Cub Scout Den Mother to proud Eagle Scout Mother several times, she raised four good men. Scouting was our first experience together and then grew into a lifelong friendship. Your strength during this time is the qualities she instilled in all of you, she would be proud!

Dear Michael, Robert, Steve, and Kenneth,

My heartfelt sympathies to each of you on the loss of your Mom. She was a remarkable, sweet person who will be greatly missed. My earliest memories of your mom are from our Boy Scout days and patrol meetings in the basement of her home. She always made each of us feel very welcomed at her house. I seem to remember an abundance of snacks anytime we met at the Mierzykowski home. I was especially fond of her Italian cookies; simply the best ! She always impressed me as an intelligent woman with quick wit, a character trait which was not lost on any of her four sons.

May God now rest her soul and see each of you through this difficult time. Your mom and all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days.

With Deepest Sympathies,

Lee Chalmers

I remember many memorable cookouts at Aunt Mel's. For several years, Lis and I had a ritual for the 4th of July: Aunt Mel's for a cookout, then a movie. I enjoyed listening to the conversations between Mel and her siblings. She never let them, or anyone else, get away with anything.

I don't remember what holiday it was, but one year Mel was painting the backyard fence, talking with her sisters, keeping an eye on various small children, and giving me job hunting advice---all at the same time. *The same time.*

She wasn't even aware of how amazing it was that she could do that! She was in full hurricane Mel mode--her default setting. Watching her was exhausting! (And fun.)

Mel will live in my memories as long as I live.

Today and always, may loving memories bring you peace, comfort, and strength.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Ken and Ann & Family:

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time, but be reassured that Mel is dancing in the arms of the Lord.

God Bless.

Auntie Cam had a sparkle like no other. She was someone to look up to and emulate. She worked hard and took care of herself working out 3 days a week until recently. Auntie Cam brought her sense of humor, "sweet" sarcasm whenever you had conversation with her. I will miss seeing her at our family gatherings each year, she will be missed dearly by her family. Love you Auntie Cam and thank you for all you did for your family, you are a true gem and Angel. You are now home with those you've loved and missed all these years. Rest in Peace <3>
