  1. Marsha I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. If she could send you telegram now I believe she would say something like this…arrived on time, the flight was great, wish you were here. We’re praying for you.

  2. Kitty, Our memories of your Mother go back many years. We will never forget the wonderful times we had at your Mother and Daddys home. She was a beautiful woman, with so much love for others. There is no love like a Mothers love. Until we meet our parents in Heaven,the memories, and the strength God will give you will comfort you, until our reunion in Heaven. We love you, Linda and Sandra

  3. Dear Marsha, Gus and I share in your sorrow in the loss of your sweet mother, but also share in the joy of knowing she is with her Lord. God Bless you and Thom and Eric, in Christs love, Shirley and Gus

  4. Dear Marsha, Thom and family: I am greatly saddened by the loss of your wonderful Mom. She was a very special person and has blessed so many lives. She will be missed by so many and I am priviledged to have known and loved her. Marsha did you know she was Pam’s SS teacher at the time Pam was planning her wedding. When she learned Pam had a dress but no veil, she quickly supplied one for her. That was 38 years ago. What a special person she was. Everyone loved her. I am praying for you. Love, Peggy Oxner
