I know there's a void in your life right now but always remember how fortunate you were to have such a great Mother, grandmother and great grandmother and she will fill your hearts. Pallie was a one of a kind. I miss her dearly . . she was always my 'Other Mom' and 'Sweet P' and always there for everyone. Keep those memories close to your heart. I love you all so much :)

To our family and friends: thanks so much for your support, prayers, kind words, hugs, cards, notes, messages, food, flowers-and especially for the friendship you shared with Mom and the stories you told about your relationship with her. I know she knew she was loved by a lot of people, but I don't think she realized just how many people really cared about her. We will be grateful to you for everything.

To all of you.I am so sorry for your loss. Pallie was such a nice person and was always nice when she would come into the credit union. She was always kidding around with you and making you feel better.
