So sorry I didn't find out soon enough to send flowers. But I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to visit with my good friend , Winona before I moved to California. My condolences to Joan and your family.

Aunt Nonnie, how do I even start? I am so, so, so glad that we talked a few weeks ago. You have always been awesome to me. Your special blend of grace and grit is something I hope to achieve in my life. You have been with me all weekend helping me push through several difficult things just thinking about what you would do. I love you. Hug Grandma, and you two go easy on those other angels up there and don't get too rowdy. Love you!

I'm very sorry I didn't know until a few hours before the service that Wynona had passed. We were school friends and she will be missed.

I will sure miss you Aunt Nonie. Your wit and openness, the way we could talk for hours, the many times you stepped in and cared for Donna and I when we were kids and the fun we always had at your house with Joan and Kieth.
We never think that the last time we see a loved one is our last time. I would have loved to hug you one more time. ~<3~
