Grandma was an integral part of who I am today. I’m blessed to have had 35 years of love, laughter, and care from you. I am also very grateful that my kids got 10 years of the same experience baking, riding bikes, and playing bingo with their great grandparents. Go rest high on that mountain grams with grandpa, your work on earth is done!

Because of Covid-19, we have not seen Sally for a while. We cannot be "out and about". She has been a part of our lives for so many years. What a pair - remember Howard eating ears of corn at church gatherings. Ooooooh how he enjoyed "corn on the cob". We've laughed and cried together. We sure will miss them at church. They were an integral part of what we were all about. Please, dear Lord, replace the servanthood that these wonderful people shared with us all. We need it so much in the world today. Love to the family. Dave and Marilyn Badger
