I'm so sorry about the loss of your loved one. Praying that God will comfort you and give you peace. My sincere sympathy to you and your family. ~Sharon Syler and family

It was always a pleasure to chat with your Mom. She was always so friendly to us. I remember her laugh. We will miss her - she was a beautiful woman - inside and out! I regret moving to Colorado and not having more time to visit with her. I know Mom and Dad really enjoyed seeing her and your Dad. Prayers for family and friends.

Wanda and Bill touched our lives in more ways than you can imagine. They were friends and mentors that could always be trusted for sound advice. They taught us so much about loving God by their example. Their door was always open and we were met with a hug and a smile. We have been blessed by them and by you as well. You are in our prayers.

So sorry , we are unable to be with you today, but we will be thinking of all of you, hoping you will receive God's peace in your hearts. It's especially hard to lose a mom and Grandma.
