Although we had only met on a few occasions, it was clear to me that this lovely, gentile lady was a wonderful mom, grandmother, and wife. I enjoyed chatting with her. She was gracious, well spoken and utterly lovely. It was a privilege to have shares these occasions. May God grant her eternal rest and peace in his heavenly kingdom. My sincere and heartfelt condolences are offered to her family and friends.
We loved having your Mom & Dad over and visiting with them at your home. Listening to them talk about how they met was so special. It makes us smile whenever we think about how Mom and J.T. bantered back and forth with each other-I think Mom always won!
Have peace knowing she is walking with Jesus.
Terri & Dennis
