From: Ardith Brown Deters May 20 2019 9:28PM Craig , I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Growing up included the many memories of your folks, and the Shoe Store. Both your folks were so good to us kids, we always felt important around them. Good, kind people

From: Lorenda Spilker May 21 2019 11:12PM Our deepest sympathy to Craig and Cary in the passing of your mother. Louise was a wonderful friend. Your parents were very nice to me as I grew up and later after I married. In fact, George was in the hospital in Iowa City June 1980 and his roommate was my father-in-law. What a small world. Louise and my mother-in-law Margaret became very good friends. They supported each other during their husbands illness. Of course, Craig and Cary I remember u two growing up over the years,too. Our deepest sympathy to you, Lorenda & Alvin Spilker. From: Rushvile County Market Pharmacy May 23 2019 10:40AM Cary, We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother.

Your mom was a special lady. I remember when I would be pushing Jeanna in the stroller and she would be out doing something in the yard, she would stop and make over Jeanna. Keep the memories close. In my prayers.
