I loved her and knew her like my own mother. She was an amazing lady and always kind to me. I have wonderful memories of times with her family and my parents as they worked together bailing hay together many years. She significantly reached out to my family when our parents, Harold and Melba Wampler were killed in 1986. Blessings to all of you, Ed, Gordon, James and Elaine
