    Dear Matt and Heather,

    “Words seem so feeble in moments like these. Life is so precious, and death such a thief…
    Love is a bond that death cannot part.
    Gone from your arms, but still held in your heart.”

    Things end but memories last forever.
    Stay strong.

    Your cousin Marianne (Belgium)

    Matt and Heather, there are no words to ease the pain of the loss you are both feeling. Costco has a huge void. So many of us had the pleasure to work with her for many years. She will be truly missed by so many.
    There was not a day I worked that we didn’t say good morning or goodnight.

    Goodnight Carol I will miss you
