    One of the fun things I’ll remember about Aunt Tootie was that she wore the most elegant & fun slippers I’d ever seen – the ones with small heels & big fuzzy balls on the top. She let me try to walk in them when I was about 9 or 10. I wasn’t very successful, but she never laughed at me, just gave me tips on how to keep them on. RIP, and love to you all.

    Dear Jeff and family,
    May God’s perfect peace and compassion help bring you comfort at this time. Your mother was and still is a darling woman. She was always kind to me whenever I would be around that old homestead near Pleasant View school. Her legacy is the kindness each of you show to others. Thats a great legacy to leave.
    Don & Cheryl Heriford and family
