Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 5To Laverne’s family, and friends, I pray for comfort for your loss. Sending sincere condolences.
    Happy for Laverne to have a new home, she’s earned her reward.

  2. Candle 6Mom and Dad and Bill and I are on our way to vacation and will not be able to attend. We do want to send our most sincere condolences for the loss of Laverne. She was a special lady. Prayers for you all from Bill and Mildred Steffan and Bill and Anita Hill.

  3. Candle 4I wasn’t there to say goodbye,
    to reminisce of times gone by.
    I wasn’t there to make you smile,
    to tell old stories, laugh awhile.
    I wasn’t there to talk of fun,
    the happy times in life’s long run.
    I wasn’t there to share the years,
    those times of happiness and tears.
    I wasn’t there to hear your fear
    of leaving those you held so dear.
    I wasn’t there to feel your pain,
    you knew we’d never meet again.
    I wasn’t there to hold your hand
    when you parted from this land.
    I wasn’t there to share our love,
    before you joined the stars above.
    I wasn’t there, I shed a tear.
    In my heart you’re always there.

    Granny. You are so loved and will be missed by all who knew you.

    Poem by, Ann D. Stevenson. “Heartache.” Family Friend Poe

    Karen (Williams) Killian
