Terri, I just saw this notice. I didnt know you had moved your mother to Marion. Was nice for her to have you, Marty, Tammie and family close to help her feel more at home.
Thinking of you and all.

Terri and Tami, I have so many fond memories of your mom when I was young. I remember going over to your house and Aunt Iris taught us the latest dance moves, like the mashed potatoe and the pony! Oh the fun we had. A little grace, a little style, and a lot of heart: heaven is even better now with a new angel. Her and Aunt Barb are dancing in heaven tonight! Know that we feel your pain very deeply and are here for you during this time of sorrow. Love and hugs Larry and Connie Schweitzer
