To my cousins, My deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mom. Aunt Evelyn and I shared a February birthday and in years past always sent me a birthday card.
Prayers, Sue (Blystone) Shadle

Carol, Your mom was quite a lady. She was always so sweet to me when I came to your house. I remember her bringing cookies and lemonade outside to us when we were riding the horse. When I had my first baby, she wanted me to come and bring him to see her. I did and we had a nice chat and she just loved my little one. I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed. God Bless you and Jim, Cheryl and David.
