My Mom, I'm going to miss her, She done SO MUCH for me as a single parent, She trusted me, She let me grow up, She took me to places that most kids never got to go. She took me to fairs, festivals, and let me learn to drive a stick shift all over my grandparents farm, Honored my decision to join the Army, knowing I would go Vietnam, But I got letters from her everyday and care packages, with Conn's potato chips, She loved her grandkids and her great grandkids, took them on trips in the camper, lover her brothers and sisters and was a joy to be around, her family loved her and she will always be a memory and in our hearts, RIP Mom, I wish I could come mow your yard one more time, I know you're with God and your husband and family, I'll see you again one day, Love always Steve

Aunt Jean was my favorite aunt in the world. She had the biggest heart of anyone I know-my favorite memory of her was picking me up at my grandparent's house and taking me to Buckeye Lake to picnic & swim when I was a kid. She will be missed by anyone who knew her. Prayers for Steve & family.

I remember Aunt Jean as a very caring, giving, person. Always time to talk and share. And oh, her homemade pickles. Love and prayers to the rest of the family, God bless and comfort all.
