    I miss her working with me at the Greenbrier Historical Society Library. We would spend time talking after my shift was over and when her shift began. Most of that time was spent laughing. She had such a wonderful upbeat attitude about life and made you feel uplifted when you left her. She filled so many roles (mostly giving ones) that she is going to be greatly missed by lots of people. I’m going to miss my Hoosier friend tremendously.

    A true friend through thick and thin. A community and church volunteer. A believer who spoke of “God’s timing” to impatient me so often. We became friends years ago on a church bus outing, but it was the last four years after my surgery when she dropped by and said “can I help?” and we really became friends. She was patient and kind with everyone she met and what you saw with her was what you got. No phoniness or pretense. Next to me, she was also the most frugal person I ever met. In her car one day waiting for a long, long train she turned her car off while we waited. I was amazed and thought I was the only one who did that. I believe that cemented my admiration of her totally. I will miss calling her, dropping in unannounced and most of all her calm, gentle kindness to all members of my family.

    I want to express my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Our family has also gone thru this experience recently. One thing that brought us comfort and hope is the promise found in God’s word, the Bible. Revelations 21:3,4 says that God will “wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no moré”. What a wonderful promise, and we can trust in it, because God does not lie.
    It is my sincere hope that these words bring hope and comfort to your family as it did to our.
