Dear Mom, It seem like yesterday since you left us. The worst part is how badly you wanted to stay. You told the doctors, you could make all of your own decisions, and not to ask any of us... You are greatly missed by everyone. Your name is spoken aloud all the time. You would love all the new babies we have in the family. You and Dad are great examples today as you always were. Stacey and I visited you. Love from your family always.

Mom I tried to do the things you told me to do in the event of your passing. I'm pretty sure I got it right . If not I'm sure you'll let me know. There's no way I could ever thank you and Dad enough for everything you've done for me in my lifetime . Wanted you to know I love you both and I miss you.

Grandma Skeen was always so caring and charitable. She loved her family so much and was always doing everything she could to help them out in any way possible. I remember little things about her that will always remind me of her, such as spagetti salad, nutter butter cookies, and Sunday family dinners at her house. :) She was always such a spitfire and she would make me laugh with her funny comments. She lived a good, long life and I am grateful for how she touched my life forever. Love you Grandma Skeen, we will miss you. Kristy Logie
