JIm, John, Mindy, Connie, Charles, Justin, Sarah, Marun and Kendra,
You all have our sincerest condolences. I don't have to tell you how lucky you all were to have such loving Mom, Dad, and Grandparents. Uncle JD and Aunt Jan had the biggest hearts and they were both genuinely kind souls. Keep those wonderful memories of them close to you and share them as often as possible. While my parents have been gone for years, I miss them everyday but I feel their spirit is with me at all times but especially when those great memories are shared. I would love to see us all get together sometime in the near future. Many of have never met yet carry the Klein name or are part of our blood line. Hug each other and our prayers are with you today and always.
Tom Klein (son of Chester "Ted" and Mary Klein)

Eldress Mary Cuspard was a friend, I lovingly called her "Mother Mary" and will miss her tremendously. What I will miss are our impromptu visits when I drive through Rochester, sometimes to deliver her beauty products and other times just because. She always had a Word for me. She is now among those who dwell in the secret place of the most High, abiding under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalms 91), praising the Lord in glorious attire. Mother Mary dressed like a queen on Earth so, I can only imagine what she is wearing in Heaven. She has been set on high with the most High. I will smile with every thought of her and soon you will also. Prayers, blessings, condolences and peace be with you.
