  1. Such a delightful lady, Merry. And you and Josh gave her joy and usefulness during her last years. What a blessing!

  2. Enid made occasional trips to Kansas as my parents aged. My father, Enid’s first cousin, remembered fondly playing with the Manning cousins. There was always a lot of laughter around my parents’ kitchen table as they shared long ago memories.

    Enid was my favorite cousin because we shared a love for art, writing and the Methodist Church. She was generous, intelligent and loving. I will miss her.

  3. Merry, Hugs and I love you. So sorry.

  4. Merry and all the family………your mother was one of the loviest and sweetest ladies that was ever in Jefferson. We all enjoyed her friendship as well as that of Tom’s when they lived here. My sincere sympathy to you all on the loss of your mother…….I lost mine in Nov. 2016 at the age of nearly 105 yrs and it still seems like yesterday. Hard to lose your mother!
