  1. Tammy Dugle November 10, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    As I was thinking of all the memories of my beautiful mother, I asked God to give me peace, heal my broken heart. This is what He gave me: Grief never ends, but changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a weakness, nor a lack of faith: It is the price of LOVE. My mother was my best friend for 55 years the one I couldn’t wait to call sharing anything and everything! So many awesome times moments we had that I will cherish always. I know your finally free of pain, and home with the lord and loved ones, that’s what gives me comfort. You will be truly missed by your daughter, son-in-law Jame misses his buddy in crime, your grandkids Brandon, Breanna, Joshua, Jamie, great grandkids Olyvia, Noah Jaxson Riley whom you named, but sadly never met. Your kids truly loved you mom, cared about you, would do anything for you, though the ending was stolen from us, We will reunite one day in heaven. Always in my heart and daily thoughts, Love Tammy Kay

    I love you gram! I miss and have missed you everyday since the last day I saw you and I told you I was having twins and you cried and told me how excited you were. You helped me pick my sons middle name Jaxson Riley. I’ll forever remember all our good times together, having sleep overs and you spoiling me and buying me makeup and Barbie’s. You were always so fun to be around and would always give everyone a good laugh. You were so beautiful with your long hair and you had a love for cats just like I did. You’ll be forever missed and always thought about. Miss you and I’ll see you again one day my gram cracker!
    Love forever, Breanna Kay, your grand daughter

    Marsha, what can I say. From the first time I met you 27 years ago, I thought to myself if this is what Tammy will look like when she is older I’m going to be ok. I personally have a lot of memories of our times together as your son in law. From the times at turkey run where I pulled you in the water and you made me laugh because you were worried about your Versace sunglasses, to us hanging out at big woods having a few. I’ll never forget how you would have such a good time when Tammy and I would be around. You had an infectious personality and you made a memorable impact in my life. I’ll never forget you Marsha, until we meet again. Your son in law Jambo.
