    Aunt Delores – I wish I wasn’t here writing this but I know how tough it’s been lately and how hard you fought to stay – but now you can be at peace. I will always remember so fondly the great family gatherings – you and Uncle Bob, Aunt Grace & Uncle Elmer, Mom, Dad and all of us kids – it was a wonderful time in our lives – I treasure those memories. We love you and will miss you. Sue & Paul

    Bob, Carole Ann and I want to let you know how sorry we are to learn of your Mother’s passing. Never good to lose a family member and Moms are at the top of that list. May your Mom rest in peace and we’ll praying for her.

    Mom I had a choice when I picked your daughter for my wife. It was a very good choice. You certainly raised a great gal. You on the other hand were the mother in law. I so glad you were my mother in law. I could not have have chosen a better one. Love always. Miss you. Mike
