Sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. Although I had never met her in person, it was a real treat when she called the bank to check her balance! We had many long chats about the weather,Callaway County and how much she missed the Steedman/Mokane Bank. - My Condolences

Boys, I was sorry to hear of your Moms passing. My Grandmother(Mildred Fleming) called to tell me. It had been several years since I had seen your Mom. She always made me laugh. You and your families are in my thoughts.

You had the sweetest Mom. I have such great memories as a kid spending time with her and your family. Lots of music, hunting and great meals! We will all miss such a nice lady. I know it is hard for you right now, no one can take the place of Mom. Love and prayers to all of you and your families.
