Kathie, Tom and Melissa,
I wish I could express how deeply I feel the loss of your mom and dad. They were the most loving kind people. It was an honor to have been named after her, and an inspiration to aspire to.
Truly a light has gone out in my world. I have so many memories of constant laughter and the love they showed me throughout my lifetime. Uncle Sphar and Aunt Kizzie even came to get my mom and me after I was born, to bring me home to Grandma’s in Lexington.
My thoughts are with you during this, I remember how much they loved you and how proud they were of you and your families.
With Love, Kizzie Lou

Dear Kathie and Family,
We wanted to tell you how much we thought of your dear mother. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. She was a blessing to all who knew her. You, Kathie, are walking beautifully in her foot steps.
God bless you all

I knew her when we lived on Kingsley drive in the early 1960’s. She was always a good friend of my mother Mildred Gries. The last time I saw her was shortly after my Mother passed. She was a kind Lady and will be truly missed.

My heart is with the family though I cannot be.

Dear Kathie, Tom and Melissa,

I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a kind and genuine person. I have many fond memories of her, one being when she first suspected she was pregnant with Melissa Lee, because she got dizzy while up on a ladder decorating the church. Another was how she always rearranged the bedrooms in the Meadow View house so that each of you could have your own personal space while growing up there. Your Mom will always live on in the memories of others, and I will not forget her.

Please know that you are in my thoughts.

And remember how much she loved you.

Fondly, Eileen Burklow Turner

We are very saddened by Aunt Kizzie’s passing and our deepest sympathies go out to our cousins and their families. Her loving kindness will remain in our memory always.

Rebecca - Sep 6, 2011

Although Kizzie was my sister-in-law, she was more like a sister to me. She was a good mother, sister-in-law and friend. We made many wonderful memories when the Ha Ha Sisters (Kizzie, Nancy, Gladys and Becky) took trips together. Many laughs and happy times! We had to say good-bye here to Kizzie and Nancy, but heaven said hello. They will be greatly missed!
