Mrs. Cornell became Mom C. to me. A beautiful, kind hearted Lady. Blackberry cobbler one of many favorite recipes from her kitchen, and her kitchen was always full of wonderful smells. Straight forward, always from the heart. It was wonderful to spend Thanksgiving, and Christmas at her table. Saying grace over meal's is one of my greatest memories of her. Always smiling, and quick to offer a cup of coffee.
Mom C, you will always hold a very special place in my heart, and you will be greatly missed, by many.
Love you Mom C.

Aunt Elnora was my 2nd Mom. I always appreciated her wit and her sense of humor. She took over a mom's duty and always had good advice for me as I grew up in my teen years.
Even though we haven't seen each other in years, a part of her will always be with me.
Love ya Aunt El
