Barb - I cannot believe "Sis" is gone. She was the most wonderful lady - and always had a smile. I remember all of us at your house on Chaney Avenue when we were in school - and she always had a snack for us. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
Always - Linda K (Fettes) Provo

My Mother was also Grandma Morrison, Great Grandma Morrison, Great-great Grandma Morrison and Aunt "Sis" to many. She has traveled a long road, but the trip became weary for the past two months. May she be welcomed at Heaven's door and watch over her family. Barbara J Michael, Ogdensburg, NY
