    Linda and family! What a great lady and life! So many memories! Our moms were our brownie scout troop leaders. You were my first grade school friend, Kyger kindergarten. Recalling the monkey bar incident, I still cry! Your mother was always so sweet and kind. Always asked about my banking career. Loved your parents! May you have peace in your memories. God bless!
    Love and Peace

    Betty was the best! I worked with her at Clinton County Bank. She always had that wonderful smile and she was always kind. Prayers and thoughts to her family on their loss.

    Dear Linda, Rick, and families, your mom and dad were such a huge part of my life growing up. Linda, I remember the first time we met when my grandma had your mom bring you play at her house and we became fast friends. Growing up in 4-H together cemented that friendship. So many memories, including going to the lake with your family. Your mother’s Christmas card was always the first one I received, no matter where we lived, and she had to find the new address many times. In recent years, I always stopped to talk to her at the Manor, as she sat at the first table as mother and I walked in for lunch. I will miss that sweet lady! Many hugs to you! Love, Susan
