    To: The many loved ones of Mary Ellen Schmal
    From: The Wolke’s
    Our heartfelt sympathy to all. I trust God will walk with you all through your time of mourning and help you allow the recall her laugh as you find yourself remembering the things that would trigger her hearty laugh.
    She so loved joyous times together, especially the eruptions of laughter those time would cause. So many people certainly know her love for holidays (especially Christmas) Certainly everyone recalls the top notch parties she and Bill would throw; with the endless spread of food. I know I do. God love them both.
    RIP Mary Ellen. Godspeed in your entering the hereafter. Love ya.
