Oue entire family has had such fond memories of your mother .Precious was truly a gift from God. We are grateful for her kindness and her deep friendship to our mother.

My heart goes out to all of you as you say goodbye to your sweet and precious mother. My mom, Evelyn Murphy, was a dear friend of hers and always used to say that she was so aptly named "Precious". I pray you will all find comfort in knowing where she is and have HIS assurance that you will be with her again one day. I like to think that my Mom helped to welcome yours as she entered the place of Eternal Joy! You are all in my prayers.

I am Shirley Heidelmark, and Precious knew me initially as Mary Kate (Riggs) friend. The last 4 or 5 years she came to know mw as me. She couldn;'t pronounce my name, and I wouldn't expect her to. She was pleased when I would come to her birthday parties or at hospice support. She is a wonderful person and will be sorely missed by all that knew her.
