Tena and Karen.so sorry to read about your mom…your family is forever in my joyful childhood memories..thinking of you…your parents were so kind and loving..take care, paula
I am sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
We want you to know that we enjoyed Mida so much while she lived here at the Springfield Masonic Community. What a classy lady! We were fortunate enough to have met her and Herb soon after they moved here. We are sorry that we did not get to know Herb well, but blessed to feel a friend in Mida.
Our sympathy to her whole family.
Dale & Polly
Tena and family,
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was such a great teacher and always encouraging!
My family was always touched that she attended the visiting hours for my sister, Pam, after she was killed in an accident. She travelled over to Lima despite the distance.
I am so sorry I won’t be able to attend the service because I live in North Carolina.
Tena– I’m very sorry that we have lost touch over the years as I valued our friendship very much. You can contact me via Facebook. I use my married name. There’s a lot of folks from our class that I’m also in touch with via FB. Or you can use this e-mail address.
Karen and Tena and families,we are so sorry to hear of your loss. Mida was a delightful friend and a dynamic teacher.

My prayers and thoughts to your family for your loss.
Dear Karen and Tina, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was one of a kind. Without her I would have never passed Biology. I did not pass a test the entire class but somehow ended up with a B on my final exam. I think she passed me because I always came by to talk to Herb. (Karen, you thought I was coming by to see you didn’t you) 🙂
God bless you mom, she will always have a special place in my memory.
