I have many fond memories of visiting Ed and Mary from the time I was a child in the 1960's until a few years ago. She will be missed.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

My great grandma was one of the most amazing women that there could be. I can’t even begin to share a memory because I have so many and I am so fortunate for that. She had such a kind heart, was so thoughtful, and loved her family more than words could say. Not only was she my great grandma, but she was my children’s great great grandma and she took pride in that. We were so fortunate to have had her in our lives as long as we had and I like to believe that she held on long enough to be sure to meet my newest child whom is only a month old and she was able to see the day before her passing. There will always be a piece of my heart missing, but I will cherish the moments spent with her and the memories made in hopes that will be enough. I love you great grandma. Enjoy that missed time with great grandpa, as I know he is so thankful to have you back as well as Scotty, and unfortunately Snow White, which I know wasn’t your favorite dog but you dealt with for me. You will truly be missed.

Ms. Mary was one of the sweetest ladies that I have ever known. I first met her back in the early 1960's. She always had a smile and a kind word. I know that everyone that knew her will certainly miss her. Marsha and family, I will be praying for all of you. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
