I will always remember New Years Eve card parties and her beautiful crochet work. You will always hold a special place in my heart.

I will always remember spending summers with my Grandma. We would go with Grandpa to get blizzards from Dairy Queen, to help keep cool on the hot summer day. Afterwards we would head back to their house and watch movies, classics. I remember sitting in my Grandmas lap and talking to her for hours. She always would listen to me. She will always be in my heart and I love and miss her so much!

I was truly blessed to have you as my mother-in-law! You taught me many things, but what I cherish most is the time you took to teach me how to crochet. We talked and laughed, and that is something I will always hold close to my heart. You will be greatly missed.

Love , Teresa

Mom, Mother, Matriarch of the Schafer’s - the one who held us together and reminded us of the importance of being a family. She taught me to live my life fully and to put my whole heart into everything I did. She will forever hold a special place in my heart, and even though she has left this earth, My mom will always be with me.

Forever your loving son,

Ron
