Our deepest sympathies to your family. My wife and I are the legal guardians of Mark Millick, the son of Mrs. Stixrude's sister, Lore. We have fond memories of Mrs. Ellen and we pray that the peace of Christ will surround you as you mourn the loss of your mother and friend. God Bless.

We will always remember and cherish our memories of Mrs. Stixrude. She taught me German, "Ja" and "Guten morgen" (though we skipped the spelling lessons) and she spent many hours entertaining my children, Juliet and Elliot. She has been a saving grace for my mother. Her family is just as friendly, interesting, and happy as she was. Condolences from the other Whittles.

Tina, I am searching for the words to express how my heart feels, but it is impossible. I suspect it would be, even for the most articulate. But since truth belongs to everyone, I can comfortably share this quote: "When we lose someone we love, we gain an angel we know.". My thoughts, my prayers and my love are with you in ways I am unable to express. - your loving Dad (in-law).
