Memories Timeline



  2. Dear Larry – It was always a pleasure to take care of your mother at the Inn at Wyngate. I took her to many of her doctor visits and she was always smiling, no matter what. She loved her church and singing in the choir, and she was very proud of you and your brother. Whenever the folks at Wyngate sing “Let Me Call You Sweetheart,” I will always think of Pauline. You have my deepest sympathy. – Charlene Deter

  3. Paul and Larry I have very fond memories of you Mother and her kindness toward me always. You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mother.

  4. Dear Paul and Larry, Our deepest sympathy is with you from all the family on the loss of your dear mother. Your mom and your dad now together will be deeply missed. They were always there with open arms and with love to share. Their smiles and hugs could always light up a dark room and help to mend a broken heart. Their steadfast faith in God and their dedication to help others and to work hard for their church was so beautiful. They were indeed an inspiration to us all. I will always remember the special times spent with your parents, mostly at church, and some visits at their home. I always felt so close to them. But I will always fondly remember one most precious planned visit to see your mom and dad at their home. I was invited to go along when their great grandchildren came in from Illinois. Your mom was getting over a bad cold and your dad had been having a rough time with his face/jaw. We were not aware of just how ill they were feeling prior to our arrival. Your parents welcomed us with open arms. Our prior plan was to take them out to dinner. They both had been too sick to have been able to go anywhere. In spite of the way your mom and your dad felt they had surprised us and made your mom’s delicious chicken noodle soup and lots of goodies. And what a treat it was! It was indeed a blessing to be together. We were so thankful for that time. Your parents were so happy to see the children and have them sit on their laps. I can still visualize Nick on your dad’s lap looking at a book of pictures. All of us “big girls” sang with your mom, Kate and Libby. Your mom and your dad had so much fun. It seemed to really perk them up. I will never forget the happy twinkle in their eyes. It always seemed that there was a special twinkle in their eyes whenever your names came up. They loved you all so much. I deeply regret that we were unable to be there with you and the family in person. I have lighted candles on Saturday and Sunday here in church in Florida and the priest said your mom’s name in prayer in church. We will continue to pray for your parents, you and your loved ones. Love, Betty and Family
