    Deepest sympathy to all the family. Ma was a wonderful woman. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile on her face. Through the years I have often thought of her and Jodie. Always with fond memories. She will be missed. Love you Ma.

    There are not many people in the world who can say that they have a 5 generation picture.... but I can. That is something that I will treasure for the rest of my life. 2 weeks ago we drove down to see Ma and my daughter got to talk to her, and love on her. Kiersten (my daughter) may not remember it, but I sure will. I now have lots of pictures to show Kierten when she is older, she may not have had many adventures in Indiana but I sure have. Ma I love you and you will be missed. I will see you in heaven. XOxo

    My deepest sympathy to my family for our loss of the most wonderful woman.I am so thankful that we were able to get 5 generation pictures before we lost our grandmother.My son was just 3wks old when he got to meet his great great grandmother.We will always remember seeing her hold my son and enjoying him.She loved babies and kids.I just wish my sister was still alive so we could have had a 6 generation picture.We were blessed to have had her for all these years.She will forever be missed until we see her again in heaven.

    Bapa, Mary, Fay, and Jim: Your mother was one of the best people I ever knew. A loving heart and a kind gracious spirit. Tears of joy for having known her, tears of sadness at her passing. May you find comfort in the many wonderful memories of your beloved mother. Thinking of you. Pat
