  1. With fond memories of a time when we were young, energetic and happy and enjoyed our infrequent visits at ‘Mama’s’ home in Balsam…

  2. June fit under my chin and was such a little thing, she liked to call me her bodyguard, and I guess I felt in some ways that I was. She loved to give me a hard time for liking Bill Clinton, and I held hopes that she would come visit me in the Heartland. She wanted to come see buffalo and wide open spaces, and sit on my back porch to watch our beautiful Nebraska sunsets. I shall miss her terribly. June will be one of the first friends I ‘look up’ when I get to Heaven. Please rest in peace with our Lord, June. I love you.

  3. June was a friend to our family and we will miss her. We enjoyed the times we spent with her. She fought a hard fight but she suffers no more.

  4. June was a little woman with a big personality. She loved a debate and had strong opinions over a wide range of topics. My trip with her to Gettysburg was memorable for the conversation and many McDonalds cheeseburgers! I’m happy to think of her free now from her struggle with cancer, gone on to better things.
