Dear Dave, Barb and family,

We are so sorry about your loss. I have great memories of Aunt Daisy and cherish the times I spent with her. Being around her and Grammy O was always such fun. Aunt Daisy was always cheerful, fun, and such a lovely and loving person. She rode up to Jennifer’s with me around 2001 or 2002 and we laughed a lot, took the kids to a nearby lake, and just had a wonderful time. She always seemed (and was) youthful to me!❤️ She was also such a great sister to her siblings. I know she will be greatly missed and I wanted to express my deepest sympathy and tell you that I loved her very much and always thought of her as a classy and wonderful woman, whom I truly admired.
Love and prayers to you all,

Crystal (Ogden) Baird and family
