Wanda and Wayne
I was deeply upset to see of the passing of Wayne's mom. Last time I spoke to Wanda, she was okay. Please take care of the two of you, especially you Wayne, as I know Wanda will be after you. Remember all the good times with your mom. They will be your savior in these sad times. I love you and miss you!

We will always remember Ms. Martha as a lady who always had a smile and a joke, especially 'round the dinner table. She watched in awe as all of my sons grew up into little men. The boys always wanted to go and see "Grandma Martha", so they could make her smile. She had a fightin spirit in her and remained a first class lady, with her grace carrying her through. We all know she is at peace with her "Henry" now and that may not make it any easier for the family, but it should make us smile anyway. We miss you already Ms Martha!!!!!!

Aunt Martha will be greatly missed. I used to marvel at
her cooking. She could make quite an interesting
breakfast. She should also be commended for her compassion and dedication in taking in many foster children.

While through our tears and with heavy hearts, we smile and say "we miss you Mom". It will be hard not seeing your cute little smile everyday, listening to you sing to us and pointing your little finger at us as though to say "I know what your doing"! You are a bright light in our lives and because of what you imparted to each of us, we are better adults. We are not happy to have to let you go but we are thankful you are in a better place with Dad. Now you really can "Line Dance" like you always wanted. You accomplished alot on this earth and oh that we could all say just half as much. We love and miss you deeply but are comforted to know...........

Well Gram, it looks like you made it. You wanted to be with Grampa and now you are. I know the two of you are having 'a time' as you would say. I'm so thankful for the time of laughing and singing with you the night before. Your eyes just twinkled and your faced just beamed. You looked so happy. You knew. I will miss you terribly and am grateful for all things you taught me. Until the roll is called up yonder, you are always in my heart. Nonie
