Halie & family - I am so very sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I worked with her a number of years at Signal and she was always willing to help in any way she could. She taught me a lot and was a great mentor. She will sadly be missed by all who knew her.

Halie, I am really sorry to hear about your mother. I didn't get to work with her but a few years but in that time, she taught me a lot.

Mary Ann always held my admiration with her strength and courage but mostly her ability to remain a sweet and loving woman inspite of the strife put upon over the years. Mary Ann, you will always be an inspiration and I consider it a great honor to have known you.

Hallie & family -

I was saddened to hear of your mother's passing and just wanted to express my condolences to you and your family.

She was a very special woman with a big heart! She was at the hospital for the birth of my first child and I will never forget the gift she gave us - a crocheted baby blanket that she made. It meant so much to us that she put so much time and effort into that gift and we will always treasure it.

You could see the joy in her face each time she spoke of you and your children. I hope that knowing how much she loved you brings comfort during the days ahead.
