    We are so sorry for your loss. Ione was a wonderful friend and sister in our family of God. We are going to miss her terribly but we rejoice in knowing that she lived for things eternal and now she will have the best. The human ties are so strong though and it is so hard to lose a wife, Mom, Grandma, sister, aunt and friend. She played all of those roles perfectly. We loved her dearly! Love and care— Rick and Ann

    Dear Al and all your family,

    You are much in my thoughts. I have found it hard to ‘let go’ of Ione and how much more for you all to say good-bye.
    Her example speaks more loudly than any words I can add, but I have appreciation for all she has been for me. Accept my sympathy and we know that you are comforted knowing that the best is yet ahead. Phyllis Williams
