    Saunie’s kids:
    Your mom/grandmother and I were classmates since the 6th grade when she moved to Abilene. We had a lot of fun times together, especially as cheerleaders. She will be missed at our class reunions.
    Oue prayers and thoughts are with all of you

    Dear Jane, Jill, Jeff, Jessica and Family:

    I have fond memories of your Mother/Grandmother. We called her Sauny. She and I went to the same church and were in the same high school class. We want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this time of loss. We will miss her, too.

    One memory I have is a chilli supper Sauny’s mother had for her birthday for a group of us when we were in the 6th grade. We had a lot of fun.

    In Sympathetic Love,

    Barbara Tice Atkinson

    So sorry to read about your Mom. I miss the days of the Wornall House by St. Luke’s with Karen Hosford and all the “clowns” assembled daily. Hope life is treating you well and that your health is great. God Bless your Mom.
