Repickys thank community for support following loss

Thank you to all of our wonderful friends and neighbors.

Claire, Michael and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our friends and neighbors who took time to wrap and unwrap the trees with orange ribbons, placed the hundreds of luminaries all along our street, driveway and walkway, attended Joanne’s visitation and service and are now involved in the “meal train.” The ribbons and luminaries were a wonderful reminder of how our neighborhood gathers together to help each other and a beautiful sign of support for us. Thank you.

It’s been a challenging time but all of you have come forward to help and support us in so many way — some of you silently with your prayers and thoughts and others more visibly through your actions. I can tell you that we have gained strength and a sense of calm knowing that we have so many friends and neighbors helping us and praying for us.

You all have helped us more than you know.

Thank you. — Claire, Michael and Rory Repicky, Hinsdale
