  • Dear Jill and Jack,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I have often wondered how she was getting along after we talked at the hospital that day. I can still hear her laugh when something would tickle her funny bone. The last time I got to talk to her was when she came to my Moms calling hours in April of ‘o8. I’m sorry that we will be visiting our son and his family in California on October 20th and will be unable attend the celebration of her life in Fredericktown. I know, like with my Mom, that even being able to see the end coming doesn’t do much to reduce the impact when the moment arrives.
    Take care,

  • We will always remember Aunt Kate for her beauty, her kindness, her generosity and her infectious laugh. She was a role model for the entire family and she was rightfully proud of all of her kids- they are her great legacy to the world.

    RIP Kate and may God Bless your family,

    Roger & Jeannine Weller Davis
