  1. What an amazing mom!! Not words enough to express my love and gratitude for the 61 years of love and affection she gave to me and my family.

  2. Sending love to all of you. I have been thinking today about how gracious she was to open her home to a house full of teens for a weekly Bible study years ago. Then in the later years I would see her walking when I visited my parents.
