I sure love and miss you little sis. I think of some of the crazy things we used to do, like dragging the boulevard, racing cars, and checking out the cute guys.We sure go back a lot of years, and we sure had a lot of fun along the way. I sure love and miss you my little sis.

Ace,Although we were friends for just a short time, you will always be in our hearts and prayers. Your lifes journey was cut short and we feel we have been cheated because we didn't have the time together even if it was at the bowling alley. :)You will be missed so much. A new journey begins to a better place.Lance,Know that we are here for you, whatever we can do. In just the short time in knowing you and Ace, it was clear that she loved you very much. All our blessings are for you and Darrell at this time of great sorrow.Jerry and Julia Harrison

Ace, I really enjoyed bowling tourneys with you....remember one of our team names was Denny's Wu's!!! I loved watching you get your first 600 series when we bowled Golden Spike!!! We were the type of friends that didn't have to speak every day, or even every month. We knew that we were lifelong friends. I will miss seeing you and getting your early morning texts on holidays! When Lance called me to break the news, I knew it was true, but I still had a hard time wrapping my head around it. It didn't seem real until I read Ed's post about your memorial service. You left us too soon!!! Please look out for and take care of Lance. I worry about him. I will miss you, my friend.

Lance, Harley, Ed and Wendy: We are truly sorry to have Ace taken from all of you much too soon. She was a good friend to all and loved helping the youth. She was always there with words of encouragement and advice for those who wanted it! I will always remember her saying when people called her short. that she wasn't, she was "Fun Size", and she truly was. She will be missed by all who knew her. Our positive thoughts, love and smiles are with you guys through this difficult time. If any of you need anything, please don't hesitate to let us know. Love, Danny, Lisa and Kam

Ace, I only knew you because I had a scary situation in my family, and you and your husband, Lance (best friend of my cousin Jimmy Gaffney) showed so much concern and effort in resolving the situation, that one would think you two were our blood family. It has only been a year, but I found myself shedding a lot of tears over your passing. I know how much your husband loves you. You two were a cute couple. I am sorry you have passed over so young, but I know you are okay where you are, although you probably miss Lance and your loved ones. Love, Janelle

I knew Ace for over 25 years since bowling the King of the Hill tournaments at Hilltop Lanes. Ace and Ed were always competive bur always made a stride to say hello and talk to me. As we grew up she was still very competitive but she had grown up into a fine lady, maybe not in height but heart. Thank you for being my friend. I will miss seeing you at the cafe at Davis and other bowling centers. R I P Ace.

I enjoyed the times my Husband and I had going over to see Ed and Emily, weather it was to have a dinner or just sit around and visit, Emily always made you feel welcome and feel like part of the Family. Although I haven't seen her in awhile, I know I will miss her, and her bubbly personality.. Thank you for being my friend, Emily Love you....

I've known Emily most of my life, it seems like just yesterday we were bowling the bantam league at Davis Lanes. We became friends fast and remained that way. Even though life took us down different paths, the friendship never left us. I always knew whenever we saw each other we'd just pick up where we left off the last time. Most people called her "Ace", I never did. To me she was always and will always be my dear friend Emily.Rest in peace my beautiful friend. You will forever be missed.Carrie
