Memories Timeline


  1. I’m praying for you and your family during this most difficult time. My Sunday School Class specifically prayed for your mother and family Sunday as our church did Sunday night.

  2. Nadyne and I were co-workers at BASF for many years. I’ll alway remember the lovely smile on her face every time she approached you. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of sorrow.

  3. I am so sorry. Your mother was a beautiful woman that meant a lot to me through the years. With love to the family.
    Terry Rector Herbert and Frank Herbert

  4. We were so sorry to hear of your loss…Our Love and prayers are with you at this sad time. May God bless you and comfort you. ‘The Newman’s and Pike families….

  5. I wish we could be there. Nadyne was my all time favorite lady. She will be greatly missed. I hope to see all of you soon. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Love Jim and Cath

  6. Rebecca: We are very sorry to hear of the death of your sweet mother. I did not know this until about 6:30 on Tuesday afternoon when I passed your shop and saw the wreath. I was scheduled to stay with mother and could not attend the visitation. You and your family will be in my prayers. You and your mother are very special ladies.

  7. Dear Rebecca and Family,
    Just wanted to send you my condolences (In case you don’t remember me I am Bobby’s ex-wife.) I remember Nadyne with fond memories even though I didn’t get to see her in the last several years. She was a kind and caring sister-in law for the time that I was part of the family. I will have you all in my hearts and prayers as I have gone through all of this myself and know how hard it is to loose a mother. My mother passed away 10 years ago. If you ever need anything, don’t hesitate to give me a call and of course Bobby and I remain friends and I try and help him all I can. Once again I offer my sympathy and prayers in one of the hardest times you will ever have to face.


  8. Walt, Darlene, and Kids,

    Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. May all the love around you bring you strength. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    What the heart has once owned… it shall never lose.
