Terry--I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was always so sweet to me when your family lived in Plain City. It seems like she went out of her way to be kind. i'm sure she will be missed by many. My heart is with you at this time.

Vangie was the sweetest person. She was such a good friend to me. We grew up on Patterson together and we kept in touch over the years. We shared so many of life's events together. My younger sister (Alice Ann) was best friends with her younger sister (Tammy). She was a great support to me during my mother and sisters deaths as well. Vangie helped me with so many things, including my daughters' weddings. She will be greatly missed. I would so much love to be there but am recovering from surgery. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love Gloria

Vangie was my BFF. We grew up together on Patterson Street. She was an Earth Angel and has more than earned her wings. Always kind and giving to everyone. We had lots of fun and adventures when we were young and kept in touch occasionally through the many years. Sorry I will not be able to attend her services as I am just out of the Hospital. My condolences to her family at this time of sorrow.

Vangie, You were one of the kindest, loving, giving and forgiving people that I have ever met. You will always be an inspiration to me. You will be deeply missed and you are, and always will be loved by very, very many people. Rest in peace and may we all learn from the beautiful example you set for us all. xoxo
