Memories Timeline


  1. We will all miss Ellen very much. She was a fine sister and sister-in-law and a terrific aunt. We are sorry we can’t be at the funeral, but our thoughts and prayers will be there.

  2. We thank God that we were blessed with such a wonderful, loving mother, whose belief in our Lord Jesus Christ gives us great comfort. May God bless and keep her forever.

  3. Norma and Nora, We just lost our Dad a few days ago. I was in checking the memorial guestbook after arriving back home yesterday and saw your mothers. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God Bless and be with you and your families. We know what you are going through. Judy Tall and Family

  4. Mom, You were the best Mom that any one could ever ask for and we love and miss you very much. However, we are happy in the knowledge that you are home now with Daddy and with your Mom and Pop in heaven. Love, Norma, John, Johnny, & Cherie
