You probably don't know us, but we knew your parents very well. Terry worked with your dad many, many years ago when they were laying carpet together, that's when we all first met. Over the years we lost touch until we reconnected through the church. Your mother was a very special woman with many talents and will be well remembered for her compassionate heart and loving spirit. May you be comforted in knowing they are together again.

To Brain and Family

Until you are reunited with your mother I know she will be deeply missed. My heart and thoughts are with you.

I want you to know I thought the world of your mother. She was an extraordinary person with the biggest heart. She knew what things were really important in life - that was you...her family. I'll never forget the time I spent with her. The time at the beach. The trip to Yellowstone. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I will treasure these memories always.

I meet your parents many years ago when your Dad hired me to help him in his carpet busness and we became good friends. Janet baby setted my two girls, she always did a very good job. The brothers probably don't remember me, but I remember them; they were good boy's (men).

Over the years I lost touch with your Mon and Dad; but I never forgot either one of them. Sometimes life moves us in different directions. I do know that your mother and Father were very special people. I didn't know that your Dad had passed away for a very long time; until I ran into to your Mon and she told me.

I want you too know that your Mon was the Greatest and would even help us out laying carpet when we needed help; She will be well remembered for her Great smile and loving spirit. She will be truly missed.

You will be in my prays

To the family of Linda:

We had the joy of living next door to Linda and Rod for several years on Gwen Drive, and we were so saddened to hear of her sudden passing. She was a great lady with a sweet smile and a kind personality that reached out to everyone. We will hear her cute, little laugh and feel her spirit with us always.

Linda was one of the kindest ladies I have ever met. She was always so gracious and thoughtful. It's so difficult to lose a loved one and so your family is in my prayers. Please be comforted by her fiendships and her wonderful example. She will be missed by all of us. She always had a great smile and a kind heart. She and your father are together now. Both of them were always so kind to me. I'm truly thankful to have known them both.

Blaine, Jan, and Brian - When I didn't get my usual Christmas card this year and birthday card, I went to the web and found that your mom had passed away. I was sick. I loved her so much. We have been friends high school. Boy, did we get into trouble back then. I will miss her. She was a special lady. I haven't visited in several years, haven't even been back to Utah for several years, but I remember you guys from the day you were born. She sent pictures every year. My prayers are with you. I know your mom is missing you and the grandkids a whole bunch. Please contact me if you get this. vmicha007@gmail.com.
Love to all of you.

Dear Vicki,
I am Linda's daughter in law Cheri ( Blaine's wife) I am not sure if anyone has contacted you since this post...If not I am so sorry. I just happened to be going through my computer deleting things & came across moms obituary & was reading it again & all the comments about mom.
Mom was a very special person & never treated me like a daughter in law. To her I was her daughter. She was always so full of love & advice. I miss her everyday. I do remember her talking about you. she always had good things to say about everyone. I never heard her say anything negative...she was always so positive. She helped me so much When our son her grandson Randon passed away. Even though we lived out of state she always knew when I was feling down & would call & cheer me up. Heaven gained a truly amazing lady. that's for sure.
I hope you receive this..if you do please feel free to email me anytime at cheri68@mail.com God Bless & take care..Cheri
