From: Claudia Moninghoff Brotzman
So sorry for your loss: I had her Mother as a client at Stone Arch when I worked there would see Mom & Dad on their weekly visits. Years later met up with both of them at Warren Haven where I was a Social Worker. She always worried about her husband, he told me she did not talk much but once engaged she would reminisce about her life & did not leave the room often. After he passed she had an awesome roommate with a bubbly family & came out of her shell talked a lot and got involved in almost everything. She loved me reading family cards & letters to her & opening presents that arrived. So sorry for your loss & will do my best to attend. My prayers are with you and your family.
