Memories Timeline


  1. To Andy,Kay,Beth,Tommy and Ann,
    I was so sorry to hear of Jos Passing on Friday. There is now another beautiful Angel added to the heavens.
    Your Mom and Sister, was a very Special Friend, and a Second Mother to me. Our friendships go a long way back for both our families. She will be dearly missed.
    Jack, and I send our love, and prayers to you all at this time.
    Judy & Jack Mitchell

  2. Andy & Kay,
    Andy, since I talked to Kay today I can’t get you off my mind; I know from experience there is nothing I can do for you, only time can heal.
    Someone gave me this card that I read often when I lost my mom, I hope it helps you. Those we love are always with us, their laughter and their wisdom, their advice and thoughtfulness are gifts of love that are ours to keep. May the gifts from your mom help console you now, and fill your heart with memories that will always comfort you. I never had the pleasure of meeting Jo, but Kay & I spoke of her often; Kay always speaks with love and admiration toward her. She sounded like a fine lady. I know she will be missed, but she’s only gone from sight.

    You’re in our thoughts and prayers.
    Virginia & Robert Reece

  5. I had the privilege of getting to know Mrs. Davis as one of the nurses who cared for her at Cancer Care. I will miss this lovely lady. Her strength and dignity touched me deeply. I can only aspire to learn from her excellent example. May you, her family have peace and comfort at this time.
