Dear Friends, Your mom gave us all so many precious memories and taught us to enjoy life and what it gives us. I treasure all of you and feel blessed that even though many years have passed since a conversation was shared between us , a love for each other will always be there. Your mom's new journey will be a joy to her and we can all see her brightening many that have gone on before her. She was such a delight always. Love to all of you and thoughts and prayers at this time. Karen Crase Luck

My name is Debbie Anderson. I did your moms hair for several years. I loved her so much. She was so cute and sweet. She always looked so pretty. She always had lots of stories to tell me. I feel like I know you all so well. I'm sure you will miss her very much. I've missed her for a while now. She was defiantly a go getter. May she Rest In Peace. God bless you and all your loved ones.
