A remarkable woman is gone now, and this world seems a little lessened somehow because she is not a part of it... a little less wise and great, a little less good and brave. May it help to know that she will never be forgotten by those whose lives she touched.And may your own cherished memories bring you comfort.

Sincerely, Steven & Judith Urich and family
