Shirley, Thank you for our wonderful 41 years of close friendship. You will be missed forever. Evelyn
I mentioned the other day that, what stands out the most to me about Mrs. D, is there wasn't anything I didn't like about her. What a nice, wonderful woman.
My dear sister-in-law, you are indeed one of the most vibrant and fun loving persons I knew. You touched the lives of many people and will be missed by all! Your life was cut short to be in Paradise with loved ones who went before you. Your journey here is over and you will not be forgotten! RIP
We miss you!
Tommy and Trisha: So sorry to hear the loss of your dear mother and previously your father. I was your baby-sitter back in the early 1970's. Your mom as the others have said was and awesome lady. Very kind and generous. It was an honor to know her. God's comfort in your time of grief. I just learned of their passing from an old high school friend of mine. I am 56 and a grandmother myself. I had forgotten that your mom and I shared the same birthdate. Love and prayers to you, Pat Apel
