    Allen, Kathy and family. We are so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. It is so hard to give up a loved one. Allen, we know you spent as much time as possible and did so much for your mother. That is most likely one of the principle reasons she lived a long and happy life. Our heart goes out to all of you. We will remember the family in our prayers and thoughts. Love, Al & Marsha

    Dan & Julie, Sorry to hear of your mother’s death. I only met her a couple of times one of which I spent the night at her home while you were in the Navy. We were going to go fishing the next morning. I don’t think we ever caught any fish but that was OK, we had fun anyway. She was a very sweet lady. I haven’t seen her in years. Remember all the good times. Our prayers are with you. Love, Richard & Jan (Staffen) Jones Remember us?
