Memories Timeline


  1. so sorry for your loss but she was ready to meet her maker. It is hard not to be happy for her. she was a lovely lady. She did our wedding flowers 46 years ago. I got reacquainted with her at the Glenwood. What a special lady. I will miss her..

  2. So many wonderful memories with Marie growing up in the Greenhouse, especially Mother's Day. My deepest sympaythy.

  3. In their younger days, our mom and dad, Chuck and Nellie Mae Parks were very good friends with your folks and always spoke fondly of them. Likely they will be together again, get reacquainted and rekindle that friendship that once was so very special. With our sincere sympathy, Keith Parks, Kay Nation, Karen Schaufelberger
