My beloved sister, I think of you everyday since you left this world. I know you are in a safe and painless life. I will never forget all of our talks and times together. I was always on you about your health and keeping those legs and feet elevated. I done that because I love you and wanted you to live a long life. I enjoyed stopping by after work to see you and have coffee. You left us to early in life but I have accepted your passing so you have no more suffering. I love you and you will always be in my thoughts. Sister Barb??

Bert, you were a wonderful sister-in-law for many years. Never will I forget the wonderful summers spent, you cooking for all the guys, me washing dishes. You worked so hard, mowing the grass, feeding the animals, and of course feeding all of us, but mostly I will remember decorating the house and wrapping mountains of packages at Christmas. And most of all, I will remember the laughter, I love you, you will Always be missed. Jan

Our Thoughts and Prayers are with all the Family. I always enjoyed the visits to the old homesteads as a youngster. What a great family. Enjoyed the few times visiting Brenda’s farm. I know Aunt Lucille thought the world of and loved each and everyone of you and she was there to greet her. Love you all.??

To Brenda’s family and friends. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. She was a good lady and one I considered a friend.

Aunt Brenda was a loving, generous woman. She had a great laugh that I can hear right now as I'm tying. I will always remember days spent hanging at the farm house with my cousins. She worked hard for her family on the farm as well as in their beautiful home. As an adult her and Wes showed support of my art. Something I will always be grateful for. She is loved and missed.
