Ron & Joyce. Your Mother was such a great Lady. When my wife and I would come over to see Ron she would always come down and vist with us and always had some coffee and goodies for us to enjoy. She will be sadly missed by everyone who knew her. God Bless, and May She Rest In Peace.

At this time of sorrow, myy thoughts are with you, Ron, Joyce, immediate and extended family members. Auntie Mackie was a role model of a strong, talented and caring person whose spirit and strength was - and still is - an inspiration to us all.

Ron and family..I am so sorry for your loss. Just thought you might like to know that your Mom lives on thru her tomatoes. Though it's been a long time since she gifted them to me, I think of her each spring when the seeds are planted. I know she will continue on in more than our memories. God Bless.
