Condolences For Mable K Bushong
I am so sorry. Your Mom was so sweet and together with your Dad they made a great Katie & Kenny Team. I have some wonderful memories of my parents and your parents together that I will always cherish. I will keep you all in my thoughts & prayers.
love & prayers Nancy J.
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a great lady. I have so many memories of your mom - at Powell Church. Whether we were mashing potatoes or washing dishes at the church suppers, or spring cleaning the church your mom was the best. Oh and her cookies...need I say more! They were the absolute best. My heart breaks for you and your extended families, but she is no longer an angel here on earth, but an angel in heaven once again walking hand in hand with your dad. Hugs all around and prayers of comfort... Deb
The years have gone by and even though I now have great-grandchildren and Rex too has passed I remember how important your parents were to us. You must have wonderful memories of them and I hope you can lean on these during the sad times as you go through your grief process.
I visited a very dear friend for several years at The Heritage and when I would pass the home your parents lived in I always hoped all was well there. Not knowing how long Katy had been at the nursing home I hope she was not there when I made my visits. My friend has been gone for four years now.
What a glorious reunion your parents had in heaven when she arrived and Rex would have joined in.
God's blessings to each of you.
In Christian love,
Terry and Steph Badertscher
