    I worked with your mom at Streeter Amet for several years. She was my work mom. Wonderful woman. I’m sorry for you loss.

    Her Walmart family will miss her very much! Always with a smile and a greeting, a very sweet woman.
    Rest in peace my friend!

    I will miss you deeply. Go dance with your husband and Ken. You had a hard but full life. I will have you in my heart always. Fly with the Angles as they just got the classist girl ever. I will miss our talks and the way we showed our love. Now it’s no longer a joke for you to get up off your butt and run wild and fast. Love you with all my heart.
