From the first moment I stepped into your house you immediately welcomed me as family. There are so many memories to choose from but the one I hold the closest is the last time I came home and surprised you. You gave the biggest tightest hug and I can still feel it to this day. Thank you for everything. I love you Mom

I met Missy when I was 15,she seemed like she was so much younger than me,,(forgetting I was a kid also!),,I was her sister in law for many years,I know that she must be ecstatic about being back in the arms of her Knight in Shining Armor! He was the love of her life! And to see her Dad and mom again! She must be doing Cartwheels in the clouds!!!!! Rest easy and fly high Sis....Love ,Vickie Lynn

Mom with her attitude and humor were one of a kind person she always has something smart to say to you. I will greatly miss her smartass comments and adding to her owl collection.

I met Missy In Kindergarten, we became friends In 6th. Grade. We hung out, went to dances, talked about boys, listen to Elvis. She called me every time she got a new Elvis Presley Album and we would listen to It over and over. We would sing songs and I recorded some of them, learn all the new dances. We had a lot of fun growing up. She had a Graduation Party, I had planned to spend the night and that probably was a good thing, because there was every flavor of Fago Pop there. So #2 dad gave us some booze and we tried It with all the flavors of Fago.. We were not feeling any pain. LOL. We had a food fight when her parents were gone. But I think her brothers were the instigators LOL. I got a phone call the next day and #2 mom made us clean up everything..I was scared to death, but #2 mom was very sweet and she gave me a smile while we were cleaning and she didn't kill me.. LOL.. I also had the Privilege to be In her and Ron's Wedding. It was an Awesome Wedding. I was around for Nickies Birth and Nickie and my Jennifer played together when they were small.. Missy was such a good Mom and she loved her children and grandchildren very much.. Also If you ever had a problem with your car just take It over to Missy and Ron's.. Missy could do just about as much on a car as Ron could... You will be missed Missy. But I know you are Happy being with Ron and your Mom and Dad..I will always Cherish all the Memories we had together and you will always be In my Heart.. R.I.P. Missy...

I have known Missy since she was a teenager and her husband Ron since we were kids.Missy was a good mother and a good wife to Ron. I know there will be a big hole in her children and grand children's life with her passing. I have many good memories of her and Ron over the years, including standing up in their wedding and the birth of their first daughter Nichole who is my God-daughter. Missy always put her family first in her life. She will be greatly missed.
