  3. We worked together at Allen Academy many years ago. I really enjoyed your Mom. She was a very true person, kind and sweet. We had lots of long visits and I enjoyed them all. Cherish the memories that you have. May God bless each of you in an very special way. Barbara Siegert

  4. Tim, Kay and Heath, we loved your mother dearly. I learned much from her, and she will ALWAYS be remembered, revered and respected.
    We had many, many good times and shared much laughter. My heart goes out to you and you KNOW she’s flying around on pristine angel wings watching over us all.
    She was a joy and Godsend to us all and hopefully, God will keep her away from the intertubes.

    Love always,
