Words cannot express how saddened we were to hear of your dear Mother's passing. Not only sorrowful but shocked. I have been friends of your family for many years, watching you kids grow up and marry and then to go on with families of your own. And then I worked nine years for your parents during those Fillmore Feed Service years. A great and gracious lady has gone on to her Eternal reward.
She will be missed by many! Our prayers are with you. --Tom and Judy Morris

I will miss your mom, she became a good friend to me in my adult years. She and my mother were staples for the women's activities at church for several years, so I assume that if there are women's groups in Heaven they will be working together again.

She always seemed to have this wonderful smile. I can remember seeing her in church and was so active and full of life. My Mother thought the world of her and I'm sure the're having a good chat today. Thoughts and prayers to you all. The Arnold's .
