My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.  Barb will be a very pretty angle watching over you to keep you safe.  I will remember Barb’s smile and laugh.  I will miss some of the puzzles she would send to me.

From: Barb & Missy
Bobbie was such a nice lady and was always smiling when she came and visited. I'm sure she will be missed by many and our sympathy goes out to Maryann, Shirley and the rest of the family.

    I was shocked and saddened to see this message from Uncle Hunt. Your Mom was the sweetest lady, feel terrible that we didn't make it down. I will always remember what a happy soul she was, and yes such a good baker !!  Loved to see her on her walks and did get over to see her when she lived a block away. May she rest in peace, and be with all of her loved ones in heaven.

From: Joy
Mary Ann I am so sorry.  It was a joy to be with you both.  God bless.
