I’m so sadden to hear of the passing of your Mother and Father they both where great people. They would always keep a check on my Mother and when always pulling out of the drive way at Mother's they always would be on the porch and waved. They where 2 very special people even when my Grandparents lived there and your Dad would always say he watch us kids grow up. When my daughter was at Mom he would always watch her even came over to Mother’s and introduced her and Summer and took Haley over to there house to swim . Your Mom and Dad will always carry a special place in our hearts . Praying for you all God Bless

What a sweet, sweet lady. So full of love for her family and such a joy to be around. To see her with her husband Hugh was such a precious sight. The love they had for one another was very evident. What an example for us and a blessing to behold. I will miss you Pansy my friend. Many prayers for your family.
