    I am going to miss you so much. You were the anchor in this family, everything evolved around you. It took me awhile to be able to call you “Momma Neer” since I lost my mom when I was younger. You were such a classy, warm lady. I always enjoyed your sense of humor, always surprised me. I hope I was able to give you some comfort during your last several months, I hope you enjoyed my vegetable soup (even though it may have had too much salt that your younger daughter wouldn’t appreciate”. I loved you and will always remember your kindness and humor.

    I will miss my Aunt Corrine. She always had a hug and a kiss for me whenever I saw her. I will always remember our family reunions and the many Christmases we spent together as a family. I pray for our family at this time for comfort and strength to endure through the grief.

    Janet and family, am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was such a nice lady. Remember you guys living up the hill from us, then years later our mothers played bridge together. My mother really liked your mom and enjoyed talking to her on the phone even when she could no longer get out to play bridge. Lots of old , great memories. My deepest sympathy to you all. She will be missed. God bless.
