  2. Tara I am so very sorry. She was a great lady, that my grandma Shirley loved dearly. Your family is in my prayers.

  3. Wow! I had no idea, but I am thankful that I got an e-mail about this beautiful long ago friend, whom I loved so much!

    Upon seeing her beautiful picture, I had a FLOOD OF WONDERFUL FEELINGS AND MEMORIES from growing up with getting to be around such a sweet girl and lady! I was crazy about her and her sisters and parents. I especially remember the girls and their mom, but I remember Don, too. What a special family.

    May you all be comforted in the loss of this lovely lady. I am so sorry I had not seen her for so long, BUT I WILL SEE HER AGAIN! JESUS HAS CLEARED THE WAY! AMEN!
