Nancy Dorman-Hickson

Such a lovely tribute. And I absolutely adore how you and Dave came up with a limo for Aunt Shirley! What a wonderful idea! It pays to have y'all as relatives (or friends, for that matter).

Nancie Erhard

Valerie, we are putting together a little handout for people with reminiscences like these from family, to be shared at Mom's memorial service on Wednesday. There is just so much more than can be said in a eulogy about a woman like her. If there is space, may we include some of this? (Our deadline is Monday, so we will have time to assemble and print.)

Susan Menhard

Valerie, thank you so much for this. You are tribute touched my heart and made me smile. Mom loved being at your home. She got a kick out of both of you, had immense admiration for you all and felt welcomed at your home. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Mary Lou Garmoe

Thank you Val, that was beautiful! She really loved you guys, and always looked forward to her visits with you. Thank you for being so welcoming to her and showing such love! I know it meant a lot to her. Love you guys!.


Dear Nancie, Susan, and Mary Lou—I'm so happy you liked the post. We just loved her so much and admired her spirit of joy and love. Of course, you're welcome to use anything I wrote for Aunt Shirley. We love you and will be thinking of you in the weeks ahead.
