I'm sorry to hear your mother passed away. I got to know her when I would visit my mother at the nursing home. She always made it a point to stop and say hi to my mother in the dining room....sometimes holding each other's hands. She was such a nice person. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I got to know her when I played piano at Riverledge for the protestant church services. I often had the pleasure of taking her back to her room and always enjoyed our conversation. She was a lovely soul and I will miss seeing her.

Sorry to hear of Ma Bass' passing. She was a wonderful person and an example of perseverance. Despite her health issues she continued to work in our store. She always had an upbeat friendly attitude. Anyone who knew her was blessed by her company and conversation. She now is at peace and with those who passed before her.
