I shall always hear her laughter, "Jann, Is that you? What do you need NOW?"
She was a joy and delight to work with at OWU. And then, those beautiful children taking swimming lessons with me. Wonderful family.
Blessed Be, Mrs. I

Chris and Kylie,
I was so sad to hear of your mother's death. She was an institution at the university. Her office was a bit like a perpetual garage sale--she had a little bit of everything and she knew where it all was. You could always count on her for good advice and a hearty laugh. She was rightfully proud of both of you. She'll be missed. Lynette Carpenter

Dear Bob, I am so glad I had such a nice visit with Pam (and you) and our 45th class reunion. Pam was a special classmate and I am certainly going to miss her at any future reunions I am privileged to attend. May the Lord bring comfort to you and yours both now and in the times ahead.

Bob, Chris and Kylie,

I was so sad to hear about Pam. Pam was as kindhearted and generous as they come. I know that there is nothing I can say to make your loss any easier, but I just wanted to let you know that Pam had a special place in my heart. I enjoyed working with her, we had some great laughs together. She was so proud and loved all of you so much. I hope that you will all somehow find peace and be comforted by the memories shared.

Praying for all of you,

Donna and Steve Margala

Dear Bob and Family,
Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and will keep you in my prayers. When we lose someone we love words alone cannot fill that void. Only God along with prayers & thoughts of our friends can bring us some comfort.
Love to you and your family,
Louise Bailey Edwards
