We are sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, aunt, sister, and grandmother. She was a very nice person to know and I'm glad we had the chance to get to know her from Stacey. She is in a better place watching over everyone and keeping everyone safe. Remember all the good times that you had and cherish those moments. You're are in our thoughts and prayers!

 Hey Kids, You just lost your first Mom, and I just lost my "second" Mom. She will always occupy a huge part of my life as she tolerated and prayed constantly for me to be blessed, and never, ever complained about my sometimes loud guitar music coming through the walls late a night. Instead, she kept praying and then rewarded me with the best Christmas cookies on this planet. I am certain that she is smiling in Heaven, knowing that she influenced me for the Lord so much during those years a close neighbors. And I love all her little ducklings as family as well. Feel blessed to have been born to such a wonderful woman. I am blessed by her never wavering love. We all will see her again in the presence of the Lord Jesus. Amen!

Denny Ruth and Family

 I really appreciated her and she was always a delight to be with.

On behalf of the whole Stought family, I'd like to say that we could not have asked for a nicer, gentler, compassionate, friendly roommate for our Mother, Grace. We were very saddened to hear about Gerry. We'd like to extend our sincere condolences to her wonderful family and hope their faith and loving memories help to see them through this difficult time.

Debbie Stought for the Grace Stought Family

 Her son Robert L. Adams, Jr., was a friend of mine. I've been searching for his family, and his Mother is the only one I have been able to find, so far. I think he had a sister. Would love to chat with her or any of Roberts relations.
