“Gerald and I want to extend our condolences to you. Gerald remembers your mother as the "sweetest" lady in the Grand Meadow community. She worked side by side with his mother, Viola at many church functions. What a wonderful lady who has left many memories with her children and grandchildren. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.”

“We surely do wish we could have been with you this morning to say a final goodbye to such a dear Lady who has been such a big part of our lives. The video is awesome - you can feel the love generated from those two to each other and to all of us. How fortunate we are to have had that love shared with us. As you continue on without her, just be glad that she is again in your Dad's arms as well as in our Heavenly Fathers.”
