I'm so sorry for your loss of a beautiful soul! I remember when Angie and her would always come over to Dairy Queen to get lunch and visit. She always had such a great smile no matter what. Sending tons of prayers for everyone. She will be greatly missed!

I only met her a few times, but I could tell she was a wonderful Lady!

I think Bruce Myers said it well!
Rejoice in the glory of the Lord!

She lived a great life and has left a void in many lives but she would want us all to be the best we can be!!

Dear Arlene, Alan, and Angie:
I am very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. May you each feel God's comfort and peace around you. She was a very sweet lady.
Angie, I'm very glad that I bumped into you and your mom at WalMart a while back. It was very nice to visit with both of you. "Mrs. Shriner," bus driver :-)

I want to take this time to let all of you know that I will be thinking of you and praying for all of you through this difficult time. You were blessed to have a wonderful Mother who lit up every room she ever entered. I always enjoyed talking to both your Mom and Dad. You all were truly blessed.
