So sorry for your loss. Not sure if you know me but your Mom and my Mom worked together @ Wayne Bank for many year's and they went to Florida together on vacation a few years. (Helen Hammond) I remember my son painting her house for her one summer not too long after your Father passed and my son fell in love with Sadie!!!. May she rest in peace. My condolences.

I work in Operations at Wayne Bank and Trust and had the experience of a lifetime when JoAnn would come in once or twice a month to help with statements (after she retired). She always had stories to tell to make us laugh! She was a wonderful lady and my condolences to the family. I didn't keep in touch with her like I should have, but I have thought of her often.
Rest in Peace Joann.

Dear Amy, I was so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I know it's been a long time since she was the mother you knew growing up and watching that unfold over the years must have been very difficult. I hope peace will find you and your family. I won't be in Liberty until Tuesday, so I'm sorry I won't be at the calling, but be assured you will be in my thoughts. Love, Betty

Amy, so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Always enjoy your memories of her, for with them she will always be with you. I'm sure Sadie is busy wagging her tail and bestowing doggie kisses, happy to be with your Mom. May God comfort and guide you in the coming days.
