Becky and Sam, I am so sorry for your loss. I thought the world of your mom. I remember her kind, sweet ways and how helpful she was at church and to anyone that needed her. I remember her kindness all through my life..since before kindergarten when you and I stayed with Ms. Stevens. I know it’s not easy to lose a parent no matter how old we are! Thoughts and prayers! Love you guys!

Nan-nan, We never had the opportunity to personally meet you face to face, but we know you well through your beautiful granddaughter, Stephanie. I believe she is everything that you taught her to be, and is the strong, faithful woman, loving and caring mother, and supportive and dedicated wife because of the ideals, lessons, and morals that you instilled in her, You were a true Proverbs 31 woman, and your legacy will live on through Stephanie and her children, who have loved you since birth.
We know you are celebrating your reunion with your husband, and smiling that big warm smile as you remember each and every detail of a life well lived on Earth. Rest in Heavenly peace.
