    I saw 4 cardinals this morning and knew that was your doing. I will think of you every time I smell fried chicken and coconut cream pie (although no one could ever cook like you) and it’s now my goal to be able to recreate your crescent rolls!! I can’t believe you’re gone but knowing you’re healthy, safe and “happy” now brings my heart peace. And, I know you had a VERY interesting, adventurous welcoming upon going “home”!! I will miss you terribly.

    I love you….Jenny Blueberry

    Melissa, I would like to say thanks for letting me take care of your mother and get to know her. We had many good conversations from cooking to reading Amish books. She was a one of a kind and nobody will replace her in my heart or the feelings I had for her. We had a great friendship. Although saying goodbye is hard, she is at peace now. I know I had a spot in her heart too. She was always there willing to give a hug or receive a hug. I will truly miss her, love to all.

    Melissa, so sorry for the loss of your mother. Our condolences go out to all the family, especially Jennifer, Conner and Kevin. Didn’t realize your family was related to Rovena (she is Bill’s brother-in-law, Charles Schiery’s sister-in-law). Small world!
