Your mom was such a wonderful friend to my mother, Ruth Hoehn, and when she had cancer and was in the hospital in 1974, she watched our infant daughter, Stacy, while we went to visit her almost every weekend. She was so loving to Stacy and to us, and such a good friend to mom. She was truly an angel on earth, and now she joins your brother and dad. We were blessed to know. her.

We're so sorry for your loss. God bless you in this difficult time, but now she has a brand new body with no more pain or suffering, just like my mom in 1975.

Condolences to Ken and his family. I have many fond memories of Nola and Charles sharing fun times with my parents Paul and Pat Kline. Now they can reunite in heaven.
