To Peggy and the extended Cullings family:
 My heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you and each member of your family. I noticed in reading your mother's obituary that she was a graduate of the same CSHS class as my dad, Charles Martin. And you and I, of course, were graduates of the same BSHS class. Having traveled through "still waters" in the loss of my parents and my wife's parents, I can relate to your sorrrow and loss. But thanks be to God, life is eternal. This world is not our home. I pray Gods peace and comfort for you and each member of your family. May your tears be replaced by joy of the loving memories you must hold in your hearts of the legacy your mother has left behind.

Jerry Martin

Dear Sue Ann and family,
Sincere sympathy on the loss of your dear mother. I remember fondly being able to look across the fields and see your home from the farm. The loss of a mother is something that surpasses all other emotions, but the memories will carry on forever. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Cathy (Minnich) Smock
