I'm thinking of you today with love and missing your wonderful mother. She was such an inspiration to everyone who knew her. I remember her best at Bedell School; she made our working environment such a pleasant place to teach. We enjoyed taking in a in a few plays & musicals together. What a dear, dear, lady.

I will miss her so much, those beautiful eyes always so full of love. That positive way she looked at life. Always with a smile. Her faith was strong in God. She knew Jesus gave his life for her. I sure enjoyed the time we spent together. We will see her again, in paradise. May God comfort you in your family.
