Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Bruce and Scott,
    I thought the world of you mom – my Aunt Joyce. My favorite memory of her was from my high school years and I had been invited to the prom in Finley. I stayed with your family that weekend, and I think your mom enjoyed helping me get ready for the prom as much as I enjoyed her help. It was a delightful weekend. Your mom was a gentle, loving person.

    May you have fond memories of her as well.

  2. Bruce & Scott,

    My deepest sympathy to you both. Your mom was a very special lady. She was so very compassionate to all who were blessed to know her. I so enjoyed when she would stop to see us when her & Clarice stopped in Litchville. God bless you. You are in my thoughts & prayers. Treasure your memories & time with her.

    Lovingly LaRae Miedema
