Linda and Richard ... when it came time for my mother Louise to leave her home and move into assisted living at Dorothy Love it was a traumatic experience for us all. Once she was settled I was disappointed to learn that few resident on her hall visited with one another. Many kept their doors closed shunning any possible social interaction except for meal time. However, Inez was a notable exception. Her friendly nature presented itself at my mother's door shortly after she moved in. And Inez''s door was always open (at least as I recall). She always was friendly and smiling. On more than one ocassion, after visiting mom, I would stride down the hall and pop in on Inez for a few minutes. When mother passed away, my intentions were always to go back to DL and visit Inez. But days turned into weeks which turned into months then years, and I never went back. Maybe it was because I didn't want that reminder or my mother as I passed her former room but more than likely, it was because often good intentions go uncompleted. I regret that. I am sure she, and I, would have enjoyed the visit. I shall forever have a fond memory of Inez and feel blessed that she entered even a small corner of our lives. Nettie and I convey our deepest sympathies to you both and to your extended family.

From the time I was the age of three or four, I can remember Inez's love for life. Despite living with disabilities, she refused to allow them to alter her fervor. She always had an incredible ability to live in the moment...a task that most of us have attempted to pursue as a goal or achievement at one point or another. Inez didn't have to practice. Happiness came naturally to her, as she found joy in EVERYTHING. She readily accepted the ebbs and flow of life, with a deep inner strength. That innate quality always attracted new friendships and built family spirit. Inez always looked forward to receiving cards or pictures of Morgan...small things that created overwhelming excitement for her. I have such wonderful memories of visiting the Midwest every summer as a child. All of us would dance around in circles together on the rainbow shag carpet, listening to Grandma play the organ. I would laugh so hard until my belly hurt. I can visualize Inez laughing until she cried. She is an incredible example to live by, and will truly be missed by all of her friends and family. ❤️❤️❤️ Love always, Rachel, Sean and Morgan

I was so honored to be able to meet such a beautiful and loving and caring woman. She had this smile and this laugh that could light up an entire room. She made going into work ten times better than before. Being able to get to know her was such a blessing. She always knew how to make someone smile and feel welcome. I've only known her for a year and a half but it felt like eternity. Heaven gained such an amazing angel. None of this seems real. You had such a big and warm heart. You would love to ask questions and get to know people and express interest in others. You never failed to bring a smile to my face or anyone else's. The best memories we have aren't only pictures but the ones in our mind and we will all cherish them forever. You are loved and missed by many. Fly high Angel.

I have known Inez for about 10 years. I thank God for letting our paths cross, as she has truly been a blessing! From the very first day I met her, I could sense her love to me, a complete stranger. But in fact, I don't think she ever met a complete stranger! That was her personality! She instantly accepted and loved you! And you could not help but love her back! If we could all follow her lead, what a wonderful place this world would be. She left a huge void here on earth, but I know for sure, I will see her again, and I will be welcomed with that beautiful smile of hers!
