To the family,

Mrs. Ramona was a very special lady. I loved her and Mr. Leanord like they were my family. I loved spending time with her, leanord, and Blake. During the time I attended FBC Princeton you could always rest assured you would see her there. She will always be in my heart and loved by so many. She and Mr. Leanord are now reunited along side our Father in heaven. They will truly be missed.

Mom, you have always been our role model. You are easy to talk to, caring, and very strong , even in emergencies when others crumbled, ie. When Kyle was hit by a car. You laid under the car and calmly talked to him until help arrived. When Kyle fell in Grandpa's wheat elevator, when Rick had his motorcycle accident and for the 29 hard years he had from that accident, until his death. And when Kyle called and needed us there in his time of need before his death. We had just lost Lee a month earlier, You were there every step of the way. We also had so many great times together.
When I called and told you that My family and I were being transferred to Okinawa 1982. You called me back the next day and told me when you and Lori would be coming to see us. When that time came, ya'll surprised us with Aunt Becky coming too. We all had such a wonderful time. LoL, I mailed packages for days after ya'll went home. When I told you that I was leaving for Saudi Arabia in 1991. You told me that if I didn't make it back that you would be over there walking the sand dunes for eternity, looking for me. And I will never forget the trip to Kyle as he Christina's home and the road trip that we had, going to Lori's graduation from Army Tech school. This is the kind of Wife, Mom, Grandma, and now Great Grandma that I strive for. (loving, caring, and strong). Thank you for being our Mom. We know that you will be waiting to greet us when we each join you in heaven. What a family reunion we will have. Miss you for now and Love you forever. Syd.
