    Your Mom was a Special person. I loved her sense of humor and how she “handled” your Dad! Enjoy the Memories of a life well-lived.

    Cindy Phelps Spencer –

  4. Losing your parents is a difficult time. I loved both of them and tried to keep in touch over the years. They were very special people and I considered them role models for me as I grew into adulthood. It doesn’t matter how you may have prepared yourself for their loss – it is still hard to imagine life without them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Linda Witko.
