Your mom was a wonderful lady. We appreciate how she helped my dad when he first came to Magnolia Terrace. Melissa Reichert. (Ed Qualls daughter)

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and her many relatives and friends especially as you celebrate her life and her entrance into eternal life during her Memorial Service. Alan, thanks for sharing with us Sunday evening that she had entered eternity that morning. As you continued singing during the concert you affirmed what your mother would have wanted and that is that life goes on and keeps unfolding one day at a time. Hence, as you shared, that she did not want you to cry at her funeral. Have a great celebration of her life! Ivan and Viv Horn

Thank you both. We all need to sing her joy and her life. She was a very strong faith person, who demonstrated her faith, instilled it in others by the way she lived her life, her actions, and eventually in the manner she faced death. God Bless You All. Alan Brandt
