  1. Curt and Byron … I’m sorry to read of your mother’s death. I happened on the website tonight because my cousin is right below hers and of course her name caught my attention. I’m sure she was a wonderful woman!

  2. Tammy, I remember how fondly you spoke of your Aunt Ione. You were blessed to have her in your life. May God give you comfort in your sadness. Sending hugs. Dee Fowler
