I will miss you. I have known you all my life. Years ago at the farm when you and Fantail would bring Elizabeth up on Sundays all of us kids would be out in the fields playing while all the adults were in the house or on the porch. Everyone together all of us family even if we were not blood relatives it was all still family. You saw so many younger ones go too soon I am happy that you have went on to be with all those who went first tell them all how much I miss them Bonnie Jean, Gary, Mom and Aunt Charlotte so very many gone from us but always in our hearts. I will miss seeing you on my travels your smile and the gossip we shared. You will always be in my heart and my memories of family times. May you rest with the angels and I will keep in touch with Aunt Norma.

Janell, Mike and Families,
I was sad to hear of Emma Jean's death but know that she is in a much better place with no illness and pain. She was a close friend to Mom, GlenRose, and visited often. I know she has missed having Mom at home to visit with. My condolences are with you. Since losing Mom, I now know how difficult it is to lose a loved one.
