It is hard to even find the words to fully express what cousin Eva meant to me. Her laughter, her stories, her generous nature, her kind willing spirit will indeed remembered by all who were honored to have know her. Sleep peacefully until you are called. I love you! John 5: 28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Cousin Karen Peterson- Arizona

Mrs. Gillespie was a very sweet woman. I remember her from Creston, we later found out we were related through marriage. I will miss her so much!

Brooke, Du, and the entire family,
I am so, so sorry for your loss. Ms. Mathews was my absolute favorite teacher in high school. She introduced me to Zora Neal Hurston and Ntozoke Shange and affected my life in countless ways. I always wanted to make her proud. This is such a huge loss.
