Rest in peace Mom. I love you and will miss you very much. Thank you for always being there for me.
So sorry you’re gone, but, I know you are at peace and the many trials and tribulations of this life are but a memory! We only recently got to connect and be in each others life. I will keep that positive and keep you and our family close! We will meet one day I know! Till then, keep our ancestors on their toes and watch over us all! Heart heart, bear bear, Thresa

Our loss is Heavens Gain! Another Angel looking down on us and steering us down the right road. Marian was a lovely, caring woman. I just loved sharing photos of “Our Husbands Cars” with her on Facebook. She will be missed! We are truly sorry for your loss.
