Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Your mother and I had many great conversations over the phone. Many fond memories of the times we were at your house. The wonderful time we all had when you, your mom, Patsy and your cousins, Cade and Dana were up here visiting. We now know that she has no pain and she is also with many loved ones. Her many memories will live on forever. Take care and keep in touch. Love Bonny and all my family

John and I are so sorry to hear of your Mom and sister's death. Death is a terrible thing, something our Creator never purposed to be. Knowing what the Bible has to say about the resurrection hope gave your Mom much comfort I'm sure. Please know that we care and send our deepest sympathy and much love to you all John and Chriscousin Jones.

My Deepest Sympathies during this difficult time. I have many fond memories of my time spent in Oregon during many summer vacations. Aunt Penny and Uncle Bill always welcomed me into their home always making sure I was having fun. My version of fun and Pages version of fun often ran in direct contrast of one another. It is with great sadness I write these words as I know how much it hurts to lose a Mother to Cancer. My Prayers are with you all. Sincerely, Tyler
