  1. Joseph,

    We are so sorry about the loss of your beautiful wife. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Your former Park Lane neighbors,
    John and Carol Murphy

  2. To the Novak family,
    My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your wife and mother. She was a wonderful person and terrific teacher. She was my daughter’s kindergarten teacher. She provided an environment to achieve and learn while encouraging Cindy’s creative skills and interests.
    She will not be forgotten.
    Connie Sebesta

  3. To Joe and the Novak family,
    I was sorry to learn of Sarah’s passing. I was her supervisor when she worked at MHMR. She was not only a kind and compassionate caseworker to her clients, but also a warm, kind and friendly co-worker who had a great sense of humor. It is my prayer that you will find comfort in all the memories that you shared with her; I know we will cherish the time we spent with her. And we will also remember those wonderful pear pies she made for us!

  4. I knew Mrs. Novak for a couple of years when I worked at Eastside Elementary, and I am deeply sorry for your loss. Mrs. Novak was a beautiful, courteous, and the most nicest person I have ever met. Whenever I saw her or spoke to her she always had a smile on her face and always had time out of her busy schedule to talk to me and i appreciated that everytime. Iwill always remember most the the times she and her children were outside working on their garden, that brought a smile to my face everytime. Again, I am sincerely sorry for your loss, and I am glad to have known such a wonderful human being.

  5. Valery –

    I was saddened to hear about your mother. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I will always remember your mother for her smile and hospitality. She was always so kind and full of spirit like when she joked with us in the kitchen over rolls when she cooked dinner for us the night of prom.


  6. Valery,

    As you walk through this time of grief and sadness, may it bring some small comfort to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so glad to have met your mom though only briefly. However, through our conversations, I know she was a beautiful, compassionate, talented person and dedicated teacher. Those traits will live on through you.

    May God minister comfort to you and your family.

    Love and prayers,
