    You were an amazing woman. I am so blessed to have you as a Great-Grandmother. All of the wonderful things you did for our family was greatly appreciated. We are very lucky to have a five generation photo with you, and that will be something I always look back at, and continue showing my kids. I wish I could be there to say a see-you-later to you, but unfortuantly I will not be able to make it! Rest in peace, with all of our deceased loved ones! Until we see eachother again, see you later! Love you!!

    Dan and girls I am so grad that I got to come back to Waupun last year and see Hazel. Her & you Dad were very good friends to Ronnie & I. Infact we were more family than friend. All my love goes out to each of you. May God Bless each of you. I know that Hazel is now back with Herman and living pain free. Love to all.

    Hello Mom,
    It has been nearly 1 year already, and I miss you as much today as I did, the night Jesus called you home to heaven. I am surrounded by love, the very precious memories I have of you. Your pictures that have captured a moment in time, these are cherished times of you. Mom, I miss you so much. Your home is in heaven and what a glorious truth to behold.
    God Bless you my sweet Mother.
    Always and Forever With Much Love To You
