    Dearest Family,

    We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Aunt Spanky

    A loving wife, sister, aunt, true friend, and Mother
    She was one of a kind, there will never be another
    An angel on earth that God shared with us for a little while
    He saw His angel suffering and wanted to see her smile
    He called her home to be with Him, to take away the pain
    He gave her wings so she could fly and join her family again
    To serve God while on this earth was one of her main goals
    She managed to touch many lives with her beautiful, loving soul
    Though our hearts may be broken, and our eyes filled with tears
    We have memories to comfort us in the coming years
    She is gone but not forgotten, forever she will be
    Our heavenly angel, to watch over you and me

    To Stewart and Family, We are with you in spirit at this difficult time. I have lost a good friend and a “sister” of the heart. For over sixty years she was a good friend and a wonderful sister-in-law. In all that time we never had a cross word, and we loved you all so much. One of our great joys was to come to Kentucky and spend time with you all. When Steve passed away, I still felt part of the family and was grateful for all you all did for us. I will miss Spanky every day, and pray for comfort for you all. You remain in our hearts , our thoughts and prayers. With Loving Sympathy. Nellavee and Family.
