I don't have a lot of memories of Sissy, which is what mom always called her, but I do remember visiting her once when I was fairly young. She was making smashed strawberries. With a little bit of sugar. And I remember telling her how much I hated strawberries, and goodness did I ever. But she insisted that I try what she was making. And that was the day I fell in love with strawberries.

I'll forever miss her. Even if we didn't get to spend as much time together as I would have liked.

Love you always Sissy.

Mike, very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have fond memories of her in Greencastle. She was always kind and accepting of me. I also saw your Dad has previously passed. I read that he and your mom had been married 44 years at the time of his passing. What a great legacy! This side of eternity is full of painful moments. But God is eternal and faithful to one day bring his own to Himself. I believe a person we admire once penned "and when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me, shine on 'till tomorrow, let it be." That light is Jesus Christ. I hope one day you and I can get together, grab a good cup of coffee and remember the great times we had in Greencastle and at IU.

Your friend,

Greg Shoup

My thoughts are with you at this time. I remember a few times meeting your mother when I would visit her parents with my grandparents, Claude and Reggie Cantonwine. What a beautiful picture you have shared.
