Dear Mary, Ethel and Family,
Your Mother was a great lady.  She loved her family and doing for others.  She was a big influence in my life.  I really liked going to her house and the sticky buns.
May she rest in peace. Our prayers are with you.

John & Betty

From all of us.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Nan lived a very long and happy life. She was a very sweet, caring, giving person.

To her daughters, Mary and Ethel,
 My thoughts are of the devoted care you rendered your Mother, my last cousin, in her final days. Laura truly had an amazing life, bridging the era of the great 1918 Flu Pandemic and the present.Never mind that she stayed in one place; history, invention, development, wars, weather, distress and happiness, they all affected her there in her corner of the world.  Laura led a full life, from a girl riding horses in the '30s to manager of her own farm these past years, a life not of the current culture, but the envy of many who will never truly understand. I feel fortunate that I was able to see her in July & August. God rest her; she will be missed by Jim, Chrissy, and their 3 kids.

Richard Nolte, Clearwater, FL

May she rest in peace.
I visited the farm she so loved many years ago as the son of Richard Nolte, Sr. along with my brother & sisters.

Richard Nolte, Jr.
