  4. Your mother was such a neat lady. How delighted I was to discover her and your dad and other Dixie residents in Salt Lake, and for many years, I enjoyed visits at the State Farm Bureau Convention, and admired her beautiful handwork. She was an artist! I know that your family will miss her very much. My prayers are with you at this time, and especially Carol and Debbie.

  5. So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a kind, and caring person. She came and sat many afternoons with mom, Doris Webb, in her later years. We’ve known your family for years, and we’re so sorry we can’t come and give you hugs in person. She missed her husband so much, and we know now they are united again. May you be comforted with many wonderful memories, and feel the comfort of a loving Father in Heaven. We send our love to your family.

  6. Aunt Sherwon was a wonderful lady. We got to know her better when we lived in the 6th ward with her and Uncle LaVar. She always had a smile on her face. She will be greatly missed but we know she had a great reunion on the other side with LaVar and her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Her and your dad were such good friends to my parents and were alway taking care of them in their time of need. They were in the ward together for many many years and worked in the temple together.
