The Lord apparently could wait no longer. Although he was astonishingly pleased with the work you had performed in his earthly kingdom he no doubt knew of the plans for a continuation of his work in his heavenly kingdom. We will cherish the wonderful times we spent together as the class of 1955.
Larry Carter, April 16, 2021 To my dear sister Sandy. I miss you, and I will for the rest of my life. Give our love to our Mother. Karen Eickmann, April 13, 2021 I love you mother; life at the moment seems colorless without you in it. It's going to be a process to live in this world without you. Christine Christine Finnegan, April 7, 2021 Not the same...for the first time in a long tim you didn't call me first thing on the morning on 4/4 and wish me a happy b-day...away in high school and college you made sure an ice cream cake was delivered to my dorm for me and classmates to enjoy...I missed that yesterday; I miss everything about you. Michael 2, April 5, 2021 Thank you for being my loving mother. I am so grateful my babies felt your tender love. I will carry your love and your love for family everyday. You taught me how to mother
