I would like to say thank you for all of the cards, flowers,calls and prayers. The love expressed by everyone has been unimaginable. I’m not sure how anyone makes it through such a difficult time without God,family and friends.
Thank you mom for loving me unconditionally. I know I could be difficult and hard
headed at times, but your love never waivered. You were my teacher and counselor when I was in elementary school and I was having difficulty learning, you worked with me and changed the way I learned and you were so proud when I became a teacher. You reminded me to never give up on a student. Being my coach, it was you who taught me to catch and throw a ball. You encouraged me to try all sports except Rodeo, but you even came and supported me there too! Being my ranch hand, you were always there to help me bring in the cows even at 3AM, you helped build fence and you even assisted me at delivering the calves . Being a roll model to all of us , you set a high standard as a mother, grandmother and Officers wife. Not anyone could chase cows one night in muddy boots then the next night , wear high heels to an officers dinner looking like a movie star. Lastly, “The greatest gift a father can give his children is to Love their mother!” John Wooden. Thank you dad for loving my mother. All my love-Dan

I couldn’t have asked for a better mother n law or Oma to my children. I will never forget when Dan was graduating high school she cried everyday the week leading up to his graduation. Then the week of our wedding moving his things out of the house truly broke her heart. She honestly gave me her baby boy, her best friend. Mom
was all about family and helping in any way she could. She was there when the grandkids were born, she put in lots of babysitting hours creating great memories for my kids. She was an incredible cook (sorry honey) and an incredible artist. (thanks for teaching the kids)
After the boys left home and dad was still flying Dan and I would visit only to find her having her potassium sundae ,she called it.
Bananas and chocolate syrup, my kind of dinner. 😋 I enjoyed all of our adventures together and our long conversations about life. When I see a beautiful sky or sunset I will know she is painting away with a big smile on her face. Our Angel on earth is now our Angel in heaven....
Thanks for the memories - we will continue to make you proud!
