Lots of good memories of June and John and trips with the Ambassadors Sunday School Class at First Baptist Church of Reseda. So many from that class are now Home and waiting for the rest of us to join them . More memories of numerous choir programs and one special duet that June sang with Dick Goens, "The King of Love My Shepherd Is". I'm sure they are singing together again in their "Forever Home".

To Holly and Jill - " Go outside on a clear night and look up into the night sky. Consider that all of those stars are porch lights welcoming your Mom, Home". Love to you and your families.

I have many good memories! June was such a good person. I have known Jill her oldest daughter for decades. June was always warm and loving and kind. She always welcomed me when I visited her home in Northridge, ,California. We swam in her pool. Laughed with her about life situations. She made the world a better place . Love you Jill and prayers for your Mom.

Although I didn't have the pleasure of knowing June for long, when we met, I came to realize she knew both my Grandmother's through Reseda First Baptist and would sing in choir with them before I was even born! This picture is precious to me because my Mom Patti and June talked most of this lunch together about all the people they both knew in their younger years through Reseda First Baptist. So much history our families have had together and I'm blessed to know June will now get to see my Grandmother's and more than likely be singing to Jesus in Heaven in unison! I also had the honor of spending a short amount of time singing to June by her side in ICU before she passed. She was clearly a loved lady and will be missed by many!

June was so beautiful and So talented. The older she and Joe got the more they stayed in touch. Joe called her nearly every week, just to check on her. Oh, the conversations they can have now. I regret I missed seeing her on her last trip to Kentucky which was last summer. A few years ago while visiting, she attended church with Joe and I. She played and sang a beautiful song she had written. We visited some friends where she got a book of a family genealogy for the Chelf side of her family. That weekend Joe and I had dinner for the five remaining cousins of the Thurman family. It was such a great day, filled with stories of child hood visits and lots of laughter. I enjoyed reading her Christmas letters giving an idea of her previous year.
My prayers go up for all the family.

So many memories of a wonderful woman as far back as 52 yrs ago. At the age of five or six, June would do crafts with us in the backyard at the table. She helped Holly make a nurses hat for her head. I guess Holly knew from a young age of her gift of caring for people. I don’t remember the kind of hat she made me, but I am still trying to figure what I want to be. Elementary school she would give wrapped presents to all of Holly’s friends who attended her birthday parties and I still have one in particular. Speaking of birthday parties, Holly had more surprise parties given to her by her mother than anybody I know. Junior high I remember those days of when she took me to church with them and I loved listening to her sing, her voice would just fill the church so beautifully. We then went back home where she had a hot dinner prepared. Today my fondest memory is when she visited my new home and I took she and Holly to lunch a few months ago at the golf club by my house. This past week, I had been blessed to be able to hold her hand before she left us. June was an incredible person! There is definitely a place in my heart marked for her.

To my most precious beautiful Mom! I miss you so much! We have had so much fun together. From traveling, tennis, lunches, shopping and Mom/daughter talks over a good cup of coffee.
I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing Mother, role model and friend. Thank you from my heart and soul for all the ways you have made me a better Wife, Mother and Friend. ❤️
I love you and will see you again in heaven. I anxiously look forward to that day.
Your loving daughter, Holly
