  1. With sympathy- Your mother will remain with each of you as long as you recall her life of special memories, and the gifts she shared with you and all she met. She was a kind, cheerful, christian lady. I remember the little church services held at Fairmont Park and when she came to visit me during the time she was selling Amway. She will be missed. I wish you comfort and peace today and always. With deepest sympathy. Lorene Lindsley Jimenez

  2. We are sorry about the passing of your beloved Mother. We have to know that she is with her Lord, as he has called her home. Jerry and I were talking today about how much we would love to be there to visit with all of you cousins, we have not seen in so many years. May God be with you all at this time.
    Love Ardith & family

  3. Hello: To all Friends and Family Members. We send our prayers and condolances to each of you. Aunt Ruth is at peace now in the arms of Jesus. Jesus said He was going to prepare a place for Her and now He has recieved her to himself. Howard and Ruth were always a Faithful Christian Witness as long as I can remember. When I was a boy I used to go with her to a small church, I believe Westside Nazarene. Be assured that Gods Love and Faithfulness will be with each of you. Love and Prayers Gene and Betty Engelbrecht
