We would like to send our deepest sympathy to Cathy and David and Lee Uhren. I worked with David at Sheppard AFB and remember him telling me about his mama's cooking. She lived with them at the time and I asked if they all got along okay and he said "Oh yes, I love my mama". I will always remember that. To live to be 100 is a sure sign that a lot of people loved her and now she has a brand new home. Prayers for all her family. Gean and Lou Johnson

My mom and I lived up the street from her when we lived in town and around the corner from her sister inlaw and brother inlaw Walter and Wilma Spruiell.
