  1. Chris, Roxann, Mark and Paul- I am so sorry to hear about your Mother. She was a great person and I feel honored to have known her. She was so good to everyone at Moffat School. She had a way with people that made everyone feel so special. I was so excited to see her when she and her husband came to South Mesa to do the Smokey the Bear Program. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. She was so proud of each and everyone one of you.

  8. Twilla had a beautiful heart and cared for everyone. Her and Dad had a great life together with all the love and faith a couple could have. She had a great sense of humor and we laughed a lot together talking of good old times. I will miss her like so many others will.

  9. Twilla was such a special lady. She was warm, caring and kind to everyone! She helped so many. I, as a first year teacher would not have made it without her support and encouragement. Rest in peace dear lady.

  10. Rocky and John, I was so sorry to hear of Twila”s passing. I feel that my life was enriched by knowing her. Karen

  11. Dear Rocky, So sorry to read about your mother’s death. I didn’t know her very well, but I’m so glad I got to meet her. Anything I can do, please call. Love, Anna Marie

  12. We were so fortunate to have Twilla join our family and share her life with our dear Uncle Ed. I have known few people as sweet as Twilla but there is no doubt she is in heaven and we will see her there.

  13. As friends of Rocky and John, we adopted Twilla as “Mom” and I think she adopted us too. She was a great lady, with such dignity and grace. She will be missed and we are so very blessed to have such wonderful memories to cherish. You can see her special gifts in her children and grandchildren. They carry her legacy with them and they and we are better people for having her in our lives. Farewell sweet lady.
