Tyler - So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God bless. 

Dianne , sorry for your loss.

Thoughts and prayers to your family. Your Mom was a great lady. Enjoyed visiting with her at Inkley's.

This beautiful, wonderful woman was the most perfect example of an angel on earth. Her effervescent smile and personality were just as memorable as her VW Bug with the flower in the vase on the dash. She was a blessing to many and I am grateful I had a chance to know her. 

Diane and family, I am so sorry your mom was the best I will always love her and miss her, she was a very special person in my life.
