Condolences to the Family

Vonnie and Tom.  You mother was such a sweet lady.  I always looked forward to seeing her when I would come to visit because she always had a joke to tell and made us all smile. The way she took care of your family and kept you all together was a tribute to her and the kind of fine lady she was.  I know you all will truly miss her.  My condolences to you and your family.  Rae (Smith) Schwab
