To Dale and the Family,
We are sorry for your loss. Your mother was indeed a sweetie and always was. Dave would have me (Wayne) over to play and it was always a good time. Your mom was a wonderful hostess. If my memory serves correctly, she even let us have one of our BYOD (bring your own Doritos) parties there on a Friday night--which in those days was a rowdy proposition. Just thinking of those memories, I think there will be a whole lot of us who will also miss her. Blessings!

Devers Families,
What a blessing to have your Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma, etc. for so many years. She definitely instilled humanity and kindness. I went to school with Dale who is still a great example of this. We are so sorry for your loss.
Sending hugs and prayers.

She was the very best Aunt that you could have. We all loved her so much. When we were younger we couldn't wait to go visit. Such great memories. She is with her sister Mary (my Mom) and the rest of her family now. We will miss her. Love to all.
