Condolence from Allan, Heather & Aden Cunningham (Leo Boyle’s Grandaughter) on April 10th, 2011 9:19 AM

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

With Loving Memories

Shirley Ann and family:
We are so very sorry for your loss of such an amazing spirit. Viola was a constant shinning light to our family. She will be greatly missed.

She’s in a better place right now
Than she’s ever been before;
All pain is gone; she’s now at rest;
Nothing troubles her anymore.

It’s we who feel the burden of
Our sadness and our grief;.
We have to cry, to mourn our loss,
Before we get relief.

We know we’ll reconnect with her
At the end of each life’s road;
We’ll see her cherished face again
When we release our earthly load.

Condolence from Mildred (Weiberg) Northcott on April 12th, 2011 10:32 PM

Shirley & family, so sorry to hear about your Mom. She will be greatly missed. Cherish the memories.

Condolence from Ray and Judy Mills on April 13th, 2011 9:49 AM

Shirley & family;
Please accept our deepest sympathy. This has been quite a year already for you. Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with you. Viola was a wonderful lady. Her ready smile and hearty laugh were always a joy to behold. No matter how she was feeling, or what she was doing, or what had happened to her that day, that smile and upbeat attitude were always there. She had a hard life but made the best of it and came out a winner. Her pies and baking were the best. I remember the many, many pies she baked for the restaurant. I remember years ago when we went to concerts and card parties at #9 Biddulph and your family was always there. I remember your mom’s wave from the door or the porch or the garden where she was working. I remember how thoughtful, kind and interested in each of us she was. She was a wonderful example to follow and we were blessed to have known her for so many years. God bless.

Condolence from Phyllis (Humphreys)Mommersteeg on April 14th, 2011 4:41 PM

Shirley & Family
Please accept my sincere sympathy in your sad loss.
