3 Condolences
  1. Dear Bill Kathy and Family:

    We were saddened to read the news of your dear mother’s passing. Although she lived a good long life of 93 years, how quickly the time goes by. Our mothers are very special to us, and it is never easy when they leave us. I remember visiting you at your farm with Richie Shane as a teenager and first meeting your mother. She was a first class lady. When we would see her and your dad out and about years later that memory always crossed my mind. She surely leaves you many fond memories. Our thoughts and prayers for Gods mercy and grace are lifted up for you during this difficult time.

    Terry and Charlene

  2. Rest in peace mom. We will love you and miss you forever. Thanks for all the many years we spent together.

  3. Our deepest sympathy to our best friends, Cindy & Bob Horn & their family. We loved Thelma. She was the most kind & sweetest lady we ever
    met. We will always remember all the fun times we had in Vegas!! May you rest in peace.
