"Oh, what great times we had at Aunt Irma's and Uncle Lewis's house! Irma and Lewis were my godparents, and because I came along before Connie and Kevin and lived just down the road, we have numerous pictures of me being spoiled by my loving godparents. Aunt Irma was very caring and God-fearing, and the times were few when she didn't have a smile on her face. Her cooking was wonderful! Connie and Kevin, as much as we will miss her here on Earth, she has at last reached her heavenly home."

"Connie, Kevin and family, we pray that you feel God's peace and comfort. Your Mom will be missed by so many. I have such great memories of the times we shared growing up and what a kind, patient lady Aunt Irma was. It was always a joy to play outside and then go into the house to be treated to such wonderful food. It amazes me how richly blessed we are to have had your parents as earthly guides. Love and peace to you all. Lita and Bryce Butler"
