This is what I read at your service: My Great Grandmother, She was young and old Smart and Bold.....Grandma was all of this. She was a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother, an aunt and a friend. She was fun to be around especially at the beauty parlor. She was respectful and caring of others. We will miss her but she is in a better place and has no pain or suffering. She will be safe in Gods arms. It is the best place to be. I loved her and I know she loves me and everyone else. I am glad of the times we had together, Niesa

Mom....We are so going to miss you. I thank you for so many things....you listened to me, for our outings, for accepting my children and grandchildren, for all your recipes.....but mostly for your son, Ken. He gave me new life when I was at the lowest point of mine. He has stood by me in good and in bad....Thank you again..without you there would be no him. I am so sorry that you had to die in order for those who used you, stole from you and then always talked bad about you in for it to stop. I hope that Tara and Connie can sleep at night. We will always remember you. Love , Judi..

Kay, So many memories I have of you. You helped me to learn to bowl and were such a good friend to both my parents. So many memories are of you and Ken with my parents at the bowling alley. You will be truly missed. My life is better for having had you in in. Rest in peace.
