So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I'm not going to be there, due to the extreme temperatures, and my arthritic joints. However I've been with you in my prayers, asking God to comfort you at this difficult. Your mom & dad were good people, and I always enjoyed being with them. Shirley is planning to be there Wednesday.

My sincere sympathy to Gracilee and Gene's family. Our parents were good friends. Bob and I stopped and visited with Gracilee once and It brought back many fond memories. She was such a friendly lady.

Dear ones, when I think of your mom it is ALWAYS with a smile on her face. She just had a 100 watt smile! And she had a way of making everyone feel special. You were very fortunate to have your mom as long as you did. What a storehouse of memories! They will console you until you meet again. 409 Ohio will always be a very warm spot in my heart. Sending prayers for you all and for the repose of your mother's soul. God Bless!
