Just wanted you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am glad she moved to Richwood and I got to know her. She was a special lady and I saw the way you loved and took care of her. And I know you will miss her. Love you.

Grandma, this  is Brian  and I want you to know I love and miss you more than you know! I miss our talks and time we spent together shopping and going out to eat. I miss you corks and ornyness. I will always cherish those moments and times you were with our family. I know you are looking down on us and are happy and no pain. Give Grandpa, Great-grandma and Great-grandpa Eddy a big hug and kiss from me. Tell them I look forward to being with them one day. Love and  kisses till we meet again, your grandson Brian.

Judy, when I was reading your mother's obituary I realized that we were in elementary school together.  You lived on Hoskins Road and my dad, Jack Glass, a carpenter, did work on your house. Upon further reading I see that Brian is a nurse at Scotts (last I knew).  I had lost track of you after you left Richwood.  My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
