Grandma, I miss you so much. I wish you were here, I never got the chance to just sit and talk about the old times. So many things I wanted to say, I waited too long. I know your with Grandpa and one day I will see you both. For now, I love you both very much. Please look down on my family from time to time while your up there. Love you, Julie Boehm

I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Emily! All the many trips to Texas brought so much joy to me. I am so glad that mom, Lynette and I got to visit with her a couple of years ago when we were there. I am going to miss her terribly but I know she is in a better place now. My prayers and sympathy go out to all of you. Hugs and love from Arkansas.

Your Mother brought smiles to many a face over the years. Her kind heart and words always left an impression on me. What a patient angel! God bless you, Mrs. Boehm.

Yvonne, Donna and family: Our deepest sympathies to you and your families. May God's peace and grace be with you all during this sad time. I truly know how you are feeling having lost both my parents in the past 10 months. Know that your mother is reunited with your dad in heaven, with the angels and saints and in the presence of our dear Lord God.
