  1. Trenton & Maralee so sorry for your loss. I remember your mom well. She was a beautiful lady. Also remember your children I had them in the nursery at PTCC.

  2. Grandmother was a great woman and and really cared for her family. I loved going to her house and playing pool and looking at her bell collection. I also always enjoyed the pond out back. RIP grandmother….
