|Let the memory of IOLA be with us forever|
"Dear Iola, you were the best godmother a guy could have - I am so lucky and blessed to have known you and been loved by you. You always are in my thoughts and prayers; I hope in heaven you do occasionally let Charlie and Marie win a card game. My regards to your loving daughters Mary, Rose, and Judy!"
"Remembering you on your birthday. Your girls are celebrating you today!
"Mary, Rose & Judy visited you and Dad at the cemetery. Did you hear us? We remembered lots of wonderful times as a family. Thank you!
"Miss you Grammie. You had a long and wonderful life accomplishing many things and enjoying those around you. Someday we'll meet again.
"Dear Aunt Iola,
You are truly missed!
George and Darline"
"Happy Birthday to a great Aunt and Godmother. We miss you. Love Jim and Carol"
"Miss you Gramie!"
"Dear Auntie Iola, it is hard for your family and friends who are here, particularly your loving daughters, not to have you with us. We wish we could help you celebrate your very special 100th birthday. But at the same time I do believe that you are sharing a massive angel food cake with George, Charlie, Marie, and all your other family and friends who are in Heaven with you. God bless and we pray for the day we all may be together again."
You are missed more than you could imagine. Wish you were still with us.
"Happy Birthday Aunt Iola,
You are missed!
George and Darline"
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM! Wish you could be here with us to celebrate.
"Christmas Blessings, Mom.
"You were my one and only Gram so of course you were my favorite. I remember all of the wonderful times we had together making cookies, doing art projects along with singing songs and dancing around your house as a little girl. I realize now as an adult how independent you were and how you encouraged me to be my own person. Thank you for loving me like you did. Until we meet again. xxoo"
"Dear Auntie Iola,
You have been the world's best godmother! Who would have thought that my mother's dear friend would be the cousin of the man Mom married? We all love you and hope God has given you a big schwenkel for eternal card games."
"To my loving sister: Thank you for the loving care & patience shown to me & my twin b=rother while we were growidng up. Love you, Sis"
We give thanks to God for all the years that we had you as our model and loving and beloved mother. We thank you for your creativity and for your feisty Independence, as well as for your generosity and self-giving. May we, your daughters, follow in the path you traced out for us! We feel your presence with us still. Love, Mary"
What a wonderful example and teacher you were! A strong woman before her time who encouraged us to be whatever we want to be.
