"You were always so kind and patient. No matter what mischief I along with Sonja, Sandy, Sarah, and Shane got into you loved us. I looked up to the way you gardened and canned. You were a true throwback to a simpler time. I will miss you.
Your nephew Terry Hatfield"
"You were one of the most amazing people to know, word's to describe you, special, calming, loving, caring, giving, nonjudgmental, forgiving, the list goes on. So spread your wing's big sister until we meet again. You'll always be in my heart."
