We are heartbroken to learn that no longer can feel the warmth and sharing that Inez bestowed to us. With a heart of gold and pearls of wisdom she would reflect on her life and family making us feel close. Proudly independent and with a velvety sense of humor she showed us how to live an exemplary live.
We thank God for having us come into her life.
To the family we extend our condolences and wishes that when time heals You will know that this Lady will always be remembered and cherished by more people that can be imagined.

I so enjoyed the video. I worked with Inez for many years at the bank. She was such a wonderful lady. She had a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh. Inez loved her family. Not a day went by that I did not hear her talk about her Mom, sons, sister, brother and grandchilden. Everyone loved Inez. She will be missed. May you all take comfort in the the memories you shared and knowing that she is in heaven and one day you will all be together again. Rest in peace Inez. You will be missed.

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains…..
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains. (unknown)

Nona will forever remain in our hearts, minds, and spirit. I am grateful for the time spent and the love shared. Life is often unfair and unkind to the ones of us left behind. We are forced to move forward with a heavy heart, and an empty soul with hopes of peace finding us and reminding us that something beautiful still remains.

Mom, your gift to me was giving birth to the man of my dreams. My gift to you is that I will always love him with my whole heart for the rest of my life. My mind knows your gone, but my heart will never accept it. God broke our hearts only to prove to us that he takes only the best. You have been called home now mom, and until we meet again rest in peace. All my love, LouAnn

The first time I met Inez, I was 18 and had just moved in with Craig and Louann (My Sister). Craig had told me that his Parents were coming into town for a few days and asked if I had a somewhere I could stay for that time. While Craig's parents were there I stopped by to meet them and told them that Craig said I had to find a place to stay. I remember Inez turning to Craig and told him, that wasn't right.
After that day, I was always Quite Fond of Inez, she had my back. Even though I did not see Inez a whole lot through the years, the times I did see Inez, she always treated me like Family.
