Dear Josh - I am saddened and so sorry to find out about your grandma passing. We had great times hanging out after school at Douglas, waiting for you kids. I enjoyed her company and she was a beautiful, funny person. Our world is quieter today than it was with her in it. May you and your family find comfort in knowing she is remembered fondly and resting in peace. Lots of hugs ~ Mrs. G

Mark, Your Mom was 1 in a million.I always remember her smiling and happy.I know we all will remember fishing at Jarrett Lake and also at the park lakes and the time she snagged herself with the treble hook and the trip to the ER.
My condolences to you and your family. John Vogler (paperboy)

Mark, Your Mom was an awesome lady. I will never forget spending Saturdays together, going to yard sales, fishing, etc. Singing songs with the radio in the truck. Going to A&W for root beer.
My condolences to you and your family and may she rest in peace.
