    My thoughts are with you Linda and Christine. I have a lot of fond memories of your mom. I still repeat some of the things she told us when we were teenagers. The one I remember most was “It’s not until your husband farts at the kitchen table and you just shrug because that’s the way he is, that is when you are really in love. When you accept them for the good and the bad.” She had a way of explaining things to a teenager that made you listen. Kathy (Wood) Thompson Bristow, OK

    Christine and family, so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. If you need anything or just want to talk, call me. Teresa Haston. I’d really like to talk to you.

    Mom tried to keep in touch with aunt Faye, I think they giggled and acted like teenagers again. Aunt Faye was always smiling. I can remember her digging out a sticker from my foot, boy did it hurt. ­čÖé ┬áLinda,┬áChristine and your children did a good job taking care of her. She will be missed. God Bless, Nita
