A.J. So sorry for your loss. We are the ones that gave her a ride to the bus for Tama. We all had such a good time on the bus....playing bingo and eating "treats" our tour guide gave us. We enjoyed talking with her. Also went to dinner a few times here in Taylorville at Angelos and Spring Gardens. We will miss her.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength;
They will soar with wings like eagles,
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not be faint.

A j, I am so sorry to hear about your mother,s passing. She was such a good friend and a very sweet lady. I always enjoyed having her on my trips to Tama. I know she felt lost after Elsie passed, so now her and your mom can be together again. I'm sure they will raise all kinds of hell! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. With love, Jean and Roger Matheny (tour guide)
