Not sure what to say?

So sorry for the loss of your sweet mother, Tom, Connie and Ray.
Laurella and Ted were great neighbors. They always made me feel welcome and at ease when I played there as a child or visited with Mom and Dad. I picture Laurella in her kitchen, busy, cooking, or working in her well manicured garden as we drove by. She always had a smile when she saw you and was so kind.
Wishing you comfort and peace at this difficult time.

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Laurella.

Sorry to hear this news. What a sweet lady. She gave many hours of volunteer work to the nursing home. Prayers for the family.

Your mom and dad were my favorite aunt and uncle. They were always so sweet and kind to me. I am sure you miss them greatly. I think of them often. Love you all

Our thoughts and prayers are with you on the passing of Laurella. She is now resting in peace in the arms of our Lord God and reunited with her family that has gone before her. Happy and with a smile she has gone home to Heaven. May you remember the good memories and love that you shared with her over the years and may they bring peace and comfort to you. ~Sandy Hein Nourse

So sorry for your loss. Laurella was a sweet, loving lady. I know she was an excellent cook from all the comments I got from Butch. He always talked of her meals when he helped Tom with harvest. I even got some of her recipes that he bragged about. I remember both Ted and her always so friendly and smiling.

I know you will all miss this sweet lady however she is now reunited with Ted, the love of her life, and our Heavenly Father.

Grandma was so instrumental in how I grew up! She taught me to sew, crochet, cook, she took me to the grocery store every Saturday, she did our laundry every week. I remember baking Christmas cookies with her, and making hard candy & peanut brittle. She got me involved in 4-H plus let me help with her 4-H group. Then there's Sunday dinners & taking lunch to grandpa in the fields. There are so many more memories that will live in my heart forever. I love you & miss you Grandma

Grandma, you were always there whenever we needed something. You cooked for us, did our laundry, took us shopping. You taught me how to sew. You shared so much of yourself with your grandchildren. I'll always remember playing Old Maid and you always getting stuck with the old maid card. I now have those cards. They bring back such wonderful memories. You taught me so much in life grandma, but I think the most valuable lesson I learned from you was to give of yourself and cherish your...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
