    My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. A great honor caring for Lou and Moe. They were amazing people,and have become a great part of our family! She will be missed. Knowing she's with Moe and of coarse the 'Big Guy' up in Heaven is comforting. God Bless You All.

    I am so thankful God chose you to be my Mom. Your trust in God was evident in how you loved people and were content with little or much, in health and in weakness since your stroke at age 47 which changed your life and ours too. Enjoy the beauty and peace of Heaven with the Lord. We'll see you later for a family reunion! Love, Sharie (Daughter #2)
