  1. To a wonderful grandmother with who I’m proud to be compared too. She truly was a person that I looked up too and learned from. I’m sorry that she could not live her last 10 years not knowing any of us, but I take comfort in the fact that she is with the Lord, Grandad and Uncle Lee. I loved her and will miss her.

  2. Ethel was a special lady to me, and the Mother of my best friend. I enjoyed a lot of Sunday dinners at their house. I enjoyed her and she was very dear to me, I’ll always remember her. With Love Marla Van Duyn Currier
