    She was the pick of the litter and a very fine person.

    She will be missed by all who knew her, which is a measure of the quality of person she was.

    Love and best wishes to all.

    Your Teresa Faye.

  3. Dear Dana There has been too many years between us but you are still a special friend. Your mother was such a very sweet lady who opened up her home to all your new college friends. I am sorry that I won’t be able to attend your moms service but my thoughts and prayers are for you and family. Sincerely Nancy. 405-919-2984
