So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was one of the sweetest ladies I know. She was always so kind to me. May the memories she leaves be a blessing to you in the time of your sorrow.

Bill and family, We send our deepest smypathy. I always loved to listen to your stories when you would come back from going down visiting your mother. A mother is one of the Most Precious things you lose in life, but the best thing is you will always carry the memories that you shared with your mother. Anytime you want to ever tell more of those stories drop by and see me, that always make you feel better just talking about the good times you shared with her. You always have to respect a lady that raised her children while her husband was off at war,and by your stories I could always tell that you have a great respect for Mom. Again, our deepest sympathy brother, anything we can do just let us know.. Your Friend, John&Debbie Shallenberger
