Dear Lori and Family, I remember going to Anita's home many years ago with Lori and Tony. I don't remember why I went, but I do remember a very kind and sweet lady. I know you are missing her very much. Vern and I are praying for the Lord's comfort for you all. With our love, Vernon and Lois (Rodefer) Phelps

Suzanne, Kimmie, Lori and Lea, so sorry on the passing of your sweet Mother. She was such a kind and loving person to all of your friends. I would see her out and she would fill me in on all of you. Had some really great times at your house with slumber parties! Roy and Anita were always such fun! May God comfort you all during this difficult time. Love and Sympathy, Robin Correll Roller
