Ruth, Janie and family: You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. The death of your mother is hard, there is not a day that goes by when I don't think of mom and miss her. Even when we know they are in a better place; it is still painful. Your mother was such a wonderful lady, and a great friend to mom. I will be thinking of you often during the next few days.

Memories

It sure was nice going to school at Peace all those years, with Mrs. Kalow doing the cooking. We could always count on a great meal (breakfast and lunch). She was a great lady, very involved with church and school. The good Lord must have decided her work was done here and it was time for her to go home. What comfort there is that we will all meet again someday! My prayers and thoughts are with all of the friends and family of this wonderful lady. God be with you all.
