My Aunt Eileen and her husband Vern were so kind to us when my dad Edwin Raszler passed on. They offered their home, meals, and so much understanding and empathy. I’ll never forget those kind words and actions. Vern and Eileen attended family functions regularly, showing how important family was to them. I’ll miss her presence in my life. Rest in peace, sweet soul.
