"I got to love Nona at Shady Lane. She was a very sweet person and loved to be loved. I always stopped in her room just to give her a hug and a kiss on her head. She always had a smile and shared them always-She is at peace now and is praying for us I am sure"

"Rest In Peace Mom. You were one of the strongest, independent women I know. You taught us to always be strong, be happy, show love and caring for one another, keep faith in the Lord and to always have that determination it takes to make it through this life.  I will miss your smile, your voice, your you."
