    Aunt Clara was one of the most beautiful Aunts and was always so sweet to us Wagner nieces. I remember her always trying not to roll her eyes when Uncle Donald would be causing all the trouble. They are both missed and I’m glad I had time to sit and visit with her at my grandfather (Barney Odle’s) funeral. Wish we had more time to visit on Saturday and better circumstances. Love to all the Richardson’s and family Nancy (Wagner) Fischer and family

    Aunt Clara will be missed by all of us. Although, because of distance we didn’t see Aunt Clara and Uncle Donald as often as some other family members, they both always made us all feel so special and appreciated – and loved. It was always a pleasure to be around both of them. Our thoughts are with all of the Richardsons at this time.

    I am the FIRST therefore making me the BEST great-granddaughter. Grandma was the best great-grandma. I was so special her and grandpa came home from florida to see me after I was born. I don’t know where I will get all my laundry quarters from, but I’ll think of you every time I do laundry. I’ll miss all of our pizza parties, I’m sure you and grandpa are having them now without us all, save me a piece? And cream puffs with chocolate frosting are still my favorite. And Critics just won’t be the same anymore without you there. Dad cut the turkey this year and well, lets just say you did a better job but we are making due. And the mash potatoes weren’t too bad but nobody mashes them like you did. We all miss you a lot grandma, keep everyone up there with you safe and tell them I love them all very much. And I will see you again someday, so you just wait for me. I love you grandma.

    To My Grandmother, To the most wonderful person I have ever known. You were sweet, kind and always worried more about everyone else than your own self . You have fun with Grandpa now, tell him I miss and love him very much. You have touched my life in so many ways And I only wish I could be half the person you were. To the BEST grandmother in the world; I will miss you more than you will ever know and I love you with all my heart. Love your LoriAnn xoxo
