I have so many wonderful memories of Lib and Caldwell. They were a special couple to Steve and me. Lib was a very sweet, kind and generous lady with a good sense of humor. I know that she will be missed by her family and many others. Remembering you all with prayers for comfort.

Going shopping with Lib was always fun. My first trip to a Shopping Center was at Park Road Shopping Center and it was a fun time.

My "Aunt Tom", as she was known to our family, was like a second Mom to me. I have so many great memories with her, Caldwell, Trudy & Patty. She always made me feel like another daughter & included me in so many things with her family. I even spent Christmas with them one year when Mark was in the hospital. I always looked up to her & thought she could do anything. She could sew, garden & cook & she made some awesome mac & cheese. I will miss her but will always have many fond memories I'll never forget.
