    Prayers for the Risavy Family as you mourn the passing of your dear mother and grandmother. She joins her loved ones in the heavenly kingdom. She has gone no farther than to God, and God is very close.

    Mom, you molded me into the woman I have become. You taught me so many lessons right up until your departure to the Heavens above.
    I feel your presence in so many parts of life, and I know you continue to be my guiding light always.
    Love you Mom

    My dearest Dottie Doo. Thank you for showing Jesus to me and showing me how to let him into my heart. You were always an angel lent to us. I just praise God for having you in my life. You meant everything to me I know we will continue to be together through prayer. So close to Jesus in Saint Joseph I know you will intercede for me to them. I will love you forever.
