For 39 years you have been a Great Aunt and Godmother and Friend. We talked about the Cardinals, M.A.S.H., and my job. You always told me to be a good boy and listen to your Mom and Dad. You are really missed. I’m glad you are with God. May you rest in Peace.
Love, Jason Fuller

I was so glad when Joe married you. He got a wife and I got a sister. For the past 49 years you were my only sister. We have shared many things over the years. You taught me to use the microwave, gave me advice on marriage, taught me to sew on plastic canvas and you shared many patterns and cooking recipes with me. You trusted me to watch Stacy, Jenny and Goofy as they where growing up. You will always have a place in my heart and we will miss you. We send strength, love and healing to Joe, Stacy and Jennifer’s Families. May God wrap his Loving Arms around you all and give you Peace.
Love, Steve and Linda Fuller

You were my 2nd mom. My mentor and Godmom and someone I will never forget. You showed mom how to cross stitch and now she’s showing me. You were so young and so loved by all who knew you. I know the last couple of years were hard health wise and I’m glad that you are at rest with God. Rest for now. Until we meet again.
