I was so sorry to hear of your loss and all who knew her.
She was my teacher in 7th and 8th grade. She let Roberta Banes Bigielo learn anything extra we wanted to learn. She made it fun and encouraged us. We had studied things we never got to in high school.
Roberta and I were both valdictatorians of our classes; she had done her job of teaching so very well.
I always think of her so fondly.

Hello Ronnie & Jerry:
I remember your mother with very fond memories. I was thinking about her last week. I remembered carrying my baby and taking Linda down to your house to play cards. You boys were a great help carrying my wash water into my father-in-law's house so I could do the laundry. You were very good neighbors. Thankyou. May god Bless you and your families at this time of your loss.

Bob & Fontella:
My thoughts and prayers are with you also.

Dear Ronnie & Jerry,

As we read your Mom's death notice it brought back many fond memories. She was our teacher for awhile, but she was also our friend.

We remember gatherings doing fireworks, making home-made icecream (the real stuff using our Jersey Milk), and living two doors down.

We are praying that it be God's will that your tears of grief soon subside as memories of love and laughter overwhelm them.

Dear Ronnie,Jerry, and family,
I wanted to offer my condolences. I loved your mom! She was one of my favorite Sunday School teachers when I was growing up. It was always so much fun to catch up with her when we were in Springfield hospital with mom. She even kept David, mom, dad, and myself at her house when we came to the MO christian convention before David and I were married. Belle always enjoyed life and we loved visiting at the fair and other places. Your family and ours seem to have been together forever. I know how hard it is to lose someone you love so much! I lost David the end of July and still have some very hard days missing him. I treasure your friendships and pray that all Belle's good memories will carry you through. Love you all!
