Thank you all for the kind words for mom.
We are grateful for her and dad, our children and siblings, all our aunts and uncles, cousins and the extended family. All of you reading this know, that not many people have had the chance to experience such a huge and supportive family. This last week reinforced that to the extreme.
Keep in touch.

Most precious Grandma... I love you! You were the epitome of beauty. Your heart was the most special. The childhood memories from all the years I visited you and Grandpa in Watertown... spent down at the lake, church on Sundays and our days spent watching soap operas, Price is Right. Puzzles, baking cookies, crocheting, playing card games... the list goes on. You were some of my most favorite memories and I promise to always keep your memory alive with my children and give them the love that you gave to me. Rest in Heaven! I love you soooooooooo much!

Deepest sympathies to the Howard Family! Angie and Jim were always so kind to me when I was a kid. I will always remember the cute dress she made me, the pool I looked forward to, and her amazing cookies that I loved. Her 7 layer one was my favorite!
Peace and prayers for all of you!

Our prayers and thoughts are with Mike, Michele, Scott and family. Aunt Angie was a loving and caring person I can remember visiting her with Kasey and her always offering her a homemade crocheted sweater for her American girl doll. She will be missed.
