  1. Nanny May is a wonderful mother-
    In-law. She loved her husband, her
    Daughters, and family dearly.
    She was intuitive. She tended to feed her pets too many treats, she
    Loved them so. God bless you,
    Nanny May.

  2. Dear Cordes,
    I am sorry for your lost 2Co 1:4 say god will comfort us in any trial we may face in life and no doubt he is with your family in your time of mourning.

  3. Ann and Sallie. I sang with your parents in the Cathedral choir. I am so sorry for the losses you have felt so close together. They were wonderful people, truly dedicated to music and to enriching the lives of others. They will be missed.
