Dear Helen and Tom and family:

Your mother was a dear lady and it was a great honor to have known her. She kept in touch with us with her cheery letters. She would send up photos of her flowers which I have kept.
We can be thankful that she had a long life and we will always remember her in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Tom and Michelle, Helen and Mark and family,
Your mother was a true friend, neighbor and co-worker thru the years. We loved her and will truly miss her. Enjoyed many "show and tell" (our knitting projects along with coffee and chatter). She enjoyed baking and would often drop off samples of her baked goodies. She never had a bad word for anyone. She loved a good book and would always give me a summary of the latest book she had read. We shared knitting patterns and during our years of working together would often go shopping on our lunch hour for fabric and/or yarn. She inspired me to start sewing and because of her, I made quite a few articles of clothing . Our thoughts and prayers to you all. Love, Peggy and Ronnie.
