    candle 8Aunt Lorene was an amazing and kind person. My memories of her, particularly from my childhood, will always be special. Deepest sympathies to all my cousins on the loss of their mother.

    I loved Lorene and all the holidays we spent together for so many years. She was an incredible grandmother to my two kids. I will remember her always – with all of her colorful stories. I am blessed to have known her and had her in my life.

    candle 1We loved Emma. She welcomed me and my family into her home and heart as soon as Dave introduced us. We created memories together when Dave deployed to Iraq which i will always cherish. We joined the FRG at Jefferson Barracks and attended their meetings to support Dave, his unit and our troops here and oversees. We put together care packages, which after a while included cat and dog food for the stray animals Dave friended on the FOBs. Of course, we included goodies for Dave as well. Emma was full of life … she missed no opportunity to enjoy it every day. She loved planting, music, travel, cooking and sharing stories with everyone. I learned a lot about Emma from her story telling. She brought her stories to life. She danced in life and always had a smile upon her face. She prayed for everyone and asked the Lord to Bless all. Always in my heart now and forever. RIP, you will be missed.
