Dear Mr. Seeger, Tom and Carol and family,

I was saddened to hear the news of Mrs. Seeger&s passing and I&m sorry for your pain. I have no idea of exactly how you all are feeling, but I do know that the pain of loss will subside in time. I cannot offer any great words of wisdom or relief, but I will tell you that I remember her always gracious offerings of hospitality to rambunctious boys taking a break from a neighborhood pickup football. That same gracious nature was repeatedly extended through our middle school, fall football, post season dinners, winter swimming, spring track, prom night events and college years visits. In fact, I&m pretty sure in the days to come, Mr. Seeger will catch glimpses of her fingerprints in people that Tom and Carol have become and in the children they are raising. In that light... she continues to be present and it is my hope that such thoughts can bring some comfort. With warmest regards, Chris Ball

I am sorry to read about the passing of Mary Ellen.

I am a caterer in Lafayette and did many parties at the Seeger&s homes (In West Lafayette as well as Vinton Woods). Also I did Carol&s wedding at their west side home.

I am sorry I cannot attend the Mass today because we
have several(4) Christmas parties.

It was my pleasure to work for Jim and Mary Ellen and because of the loyal customers like them I builded a great business.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Judi Painter

I remember Mrs. Seeger always having a smile on her face and always moving with grace and quiet confidence. I remember her on Easter Sunday at Ann Smith&s home enjoying her family around her and laughing. I remember her steadfast friendship to Ann and Charlie&s mother during her illness; a loyalty that was beautiful and inspiring.
It has been many years since I have seen Jeff and Carol, but I remember you fondly as well. All the people so touched by Mrs. Seeger are in my prayers today.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
