We knew Yolanda Tworek from St. James church. She spoke highly of her daughter (who lives in AZ). She adored her grandchildren. Ms. Tworek was a shy, quiet lady. She was a wonderful cook, dancer, friend. She was always kind and loved to entertain. She was always dressed to perfection. She enjoyed the finer things in life with her husband, Don. We send our love, prayers and deepest sympathies to her family and especially her daughter. We were saddened to hear of her husband's passing in early March 2020. They are now celebrating eternal life together rejoicing in God's presence. Both had a very strong faith. May God give their surviving family members strength, grace, hope and peace. May God Bless them today, tomorrow and always.

Dear Valerie- Thank you for sending thIs link to me. Although I never met your mom, I feel that I know her a bit better from thIs tribute you wrote for her. Please know that you and your family are often in my thoughts and prayers. I am sure you are familiar with the poem: Desiderata. It is timeless and beautifully written. It has always brought strength and comfort to me and I hope it will for you as well. GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.By Max Ehrmann © 1927
