Sara, Spencer, Mark,
Your mom/grandma was a wonderful lady who was very loving and kind. She is now in heaven dancing with Grandpa Harold like Spencer said. You are all in my thoughts during this hard time. I know she loves you all and is smiling down from heaven on each of you. May you all find comfort in one another during this difficult time.
I graduated with Twylah from high school. She was always a busy & caring person. I have good memories from school days with her.
May God Bless U all.

I never met your mom/grandma but heard a lot of her over the last six years. Happy to have Sara be a part of our family. You have our sympathy. Bob, Sarah, Kyle and Katie
