    I am so blessed to have had you for a mother, and that we got to share our last Mother’s Day together. It will be a memory I will carry with me until we are together again. My heart aches so much. The only relief comes from knowing that your pain and suffering has come to a end. I know in my heart you made it to your mother and will watch over our family as the angel you are. You will be missed so much. Love you forever and always mom.

    My deepest condolences to the family. I’ve been a customer of your mother/wife for 20+ years. She was one of the kindest souls I’ve ever met. I could be in a store and she would come up and hug me. She was one of a kind and will forever be missed.

    I was very blessed to have had Nae call me her best friend for thirty-three years. Since my husband, Joel, served in the Air Force for 30 years, we moved every two to four years. I met Nae for the first time when Joel was stationed at Langley Air Force Base in 1988. We became very good friends right away because we had a lot of things in common. Nae and I believed in hard work, supporting our family, improving where we live, and enjoying our family and friends. As time went by, we visited and kept up with each other all over the place, even Alaska. Frank and Nae visited and supported our family through good times and sad times. Nae showed her love with cards and gifts to Joel and me, our children and grandchildren. When we were together with Nae, she devoted her entire time to us. She listened closely to what we said, and she would give her advice or opinion as she thought necessary, especially about home decorating and remodeling. Nae was very frugal, but she knew how to live with elegance. She cooked gourmet food and wore fine clothing and elegant jewelry, but she also shared it with others. Nae was a true friend to me and like a real sister. We are sad to say goodbye to Nae, but we know she is in a better place and no longer suffering from many years of sickness and pain. I thank God for Nae being such a loyal and loving friend to me and my entire family. We also thank Frank for his dedication to Nae and his friendship to us.
