    You got your angel wings Junie. I’ll miss our many talks. I will always cherish our get togethers with you and Jim at cousin Vivian and Lowells crab feeds in Crescent City. Quite a trip in Feb. to get there. You were a fantastic lady with a great sense of humor and infectious laugh. You had a heart of gold and always were a great listener and never judged. Yes you certainly did earn your angel wings. My love and heartfelt sympathy to all your family. Deanna Joe

    I am so sorry to hear this. June was a really sweet lady. Jim and June were our neighbors since I was just a kid. I have many memories of riding my horse in the field and meeting Jim and June over by the fence for a long talk. She will be missed greatly.

    Margaret, Mike, Mary,Pat and Carol (and families),
    I am sending love to all of you. Your mom had a kind heart and a great laugh. They are all together just like when we were kids and we were all at Samish enjoying the summer.
    Love you all,
    Mary Kate

    To my Wonderful Mother, I love and miss you so much. You were a very courageous and special woman. I will miss our daily talks and all the laughter and fun we had. You are with Dad now, the love of your life, to walk hand and hand through eternity.
    I love you. Margie
