To the family: My Mom and Dad (Alice and Wayne Whitmyer) greatly enjoyed their times together with your Mom, playing cards and visiting back and forth, Ohio to Florida.
She was a wonderful wife to my Uncle Paul and a loving person with a huge heart. She and I shared some genealogy information and pictures of family over the years and I am blessed to have known her.
