Dear Terry, Cheryl, and families....we remember your mom fondly, and were shocked to hear of her passing. Due to work schedules, we couldn't be there with you. But please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. My gramma was one heck of a person and I know she captured everyones heart. She did teach me alot of lessons during my life, one I'll never forget, "Do not dwell on the things you can not change, focus on the things you can." You maybe in heaven, but you never left us! Im proud to say your my grandma!

Dear Terry and Cheryl and families. You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mom, I wondered why we hadn't seen her at the 84 Lounge. I was off sick for months, but I did see her once this year. Please accept our heartfelt condolences from myself and the employees of the 84 Lounge and Lakes
