Dear Dave and Diane, I will always cherish the fun Sunday afternoons spent at the 51 acres, especially those times when your Dad and Mom would drive out to visit everyone. Your Mom had a good sense of humor -- which you, Diane, obviously inherited (how else could you have put up with Dave lo these many years!) Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love you to both of you always! Dawn

Bob and I have you all in our thoughts and prayers during these days of saddness and loss. Yet we also know there is great hope and comfort in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Katie was a wonderful person. I have many happy memories of her from the times I spent with your family at school and at church. I am grateful for the many invitations to spend time at your home. I know how much you will miss her. She had a loving personality and her smile was a blessing to all of us!

I'll always remember the wonderful smile as we came through the lunch line at MHS, MANY years ago. Katie was a great lady and loved by many. God rest her soul. Arlan & Diane, my deepest sympathies to you and your families. Your Mom's struggle is over and you can look forward to seeing her again in a better place. God Bless. Love, Noreen

With Katie"s smile she help make and serve many meals at Morristown Public School. Her dedication to this service must have been great because I don't ever remember not seeing her there every school day. I will always remember her as a "nice person" that was reflected on her children as they were always there to give me a smile even though I was a very lower classman. She will be missed by her family and the community.
