  • Your Mother was such a dear soul. She was my partner on bus trips and she also made sure I had my State Quarters from Colorado and wherever else she had extras from and would sell them to me when we had lunch at Der Dutchman with the Lex Area Sr Citizens. She was such a positive person and a joy to be around. She will be missed and you have my sympathy with hugs.

  • Bamb and Linda and family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. She may be gone but not forgotten. We enjoyed our visits with her and her great food, smile and kindness. Will treasure the memories we made with her and her family. Thoughts and prayers ,

    Patsy Coaly and Connie Gregory.

  • My prayers are with all of you.There are no words to describe when you lose your mother.Take comfort in each other.
