Dear Danny, Ruth, Janelle and Karen, Betsy, Carol and Families,
Aunt Narcissa was a delight to know and am especially pleased that she was my aunt. She was always kind, cheerful, welcoming and a wonderful cook. We had few visits once we moved to the West in 1960 but they were all meaningful and lovely. I especially remember our visit in 1972 when my friend Kathy and I travelled around the country. We are very pleased that we were able to visit in 2018 and reunite again with many of you. Our prayers and best wishes are with you during this sad time.
PS I also enjoyed the apple butter and hand made noodles.

Aunt Narcissa was a wonderful aunt and person. She always spoke with joy and happiness in her voice which helped us to be happy also. She was a wonderful cook. Her and Uncle Morgan's apple butter was the best! We'll miss but always remember her. Your all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Danny, Ruth, Janelle, Betsy, Karen, and Carole,
I am sad to hear of Aunt Narcissa's passing, but I will always remember her kind, happy spirit. We are a continent apart so our visits have been few, but I was so happy we were able to spend time together and especially with her. I will remember our times playing at the farm when we were kids, and always looking forward to the apple butter she would send at Christmas! Prayers to you and your entire family.
