  1. Linda Thompson

    My deepest condolences to family and friends. Your mother was dearly loved and cherished by my mother, Hazel Tart. We went many times to visit with her. They were always so happy to see each other and talk. Know they are rejoicing together once again. Prayers during this difficult time.

  2. Carolyn and Louis Stevens

    We were next door neighbors for 28 years and could not have had better ones. We watched Gloria, Ann, and Danny grow up (they were wonderful babysitters!) and were wonderful caregivers for their mother. I am so sorry Nona had to suffer so long but I know she is in a better place now.

  3. Nancy Reavis

    Ann and Gloria. I am saddened in hearing of the death of your sweet Mother. Cherish the sweet memories and keep her utmost in your heart. Love to you and your family.
