To my Kentucky Family, I am so sorry for the loss you all are feeling! I feel very sad as well. I have other committments that keep me from being able to attend the service, but I am there in spirit. There has always been a large part of me that has always been there in Dryridge Ky. It feels like my home and you all feel like my own relatives! Christine will definately be missed! I have so many memories of her and Herman! The first time we went to Concord we went back to their house and ate a tremendous dinner, and played with kittens in the barn! That was my first memory of Dryridge! How quickly time has passed! I am going to try to make it to Dryridge at the end of the summer. Take care of everyone and keep in touch! Love John Jr. and Family!

My deepest sympathy to all family members. Your mom was a specil member of a family that is wonderful and caring. I feel good knowing that Mom has your family to talk with, etc. Mom will sure miss talking to Christine often. I remember growing up and hearing Mom and Christine discussing the soap operas. I have very good memories of growing up and going to Herman's and Christine's, and now, they are together again. You no doubt have special memories of your parents, and they will always be with you. Since I live in Maryland, I will not be at the funeral, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Again my smpathy and love, Diana Cruey Schneider
