  1. To all the children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren and especially to Seka may the good Lord bless you with special powers to handle your loss. The Divichs

  2. To the most loving and beautiful “Baba” on this earth: Not a day will go by that you are not in my thoughts. As you said, it was a precious time we had together, and a special bond will be between us always.

  3. To Bert & Natalie, I was so saddened to read of Mary’s death. She was a very lovely lady and I enjoyed knowing her and having her as a customer at the bank. She will be missed. Mary Sharp

  4. Dear Family of Mary Davich, We met Mrs. Davich at the Carrington Nursing Center in Starkville and had many talks with her. She was a most gracious lady and we enjoyed the opportunity to get to know her. She was nice to everyone and a pleasure to be around. We share with you in your loss.

  5. I remember your mother well and always she was a special lady. We will continue to remember your family in our prayers.

  6. Bert and Natalie, We all will miss your mother. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to come to visitation; my parents, Peggy & Wil Thomson were there. Ever since I was diagnosed with MS 12 yrs. ago your mom has been extra-special to me and my family by making her delicious lasagna & wonderful cookies. I will always have fond memories of her. I know you probably don’t remember me, but Natalie, I remember you being so pretty in HS and Bert I think you were 1 or 2 yrs. older than my older brother, Joe. Joe graduated in ’70 & I in ’72. We have a younger brother who graduated in ’75 from SAcademy. Our thoughts & prayers are with you! Sincerely, Fancy & Ernie George

  7. To my mother whom I miss every day. To the most loving & forgiving soul I have ever known. Thank you for your guidence, love and patience. Thank you for your living example of what right is. Since you are gone from this world, I think every day of the prayer I shared at your memorial to find some of the strength and wisdom you shared with me every day: “O Great Spirit” “Whose Voice I Hear In The winds” “And Whose Breath gives Life To All The World” “Hear Me! I Am Small & Weak! I need Your strength & Wisdom!” “So When Life Fades, As The Fading Sunset, My spirit May come To You Without Shame”
