    So sorry for your loss. I know her heavenly rewards are there waiting on her. I wish we could have seen this part of the family more. Anne and I did visit St James cemetery this spring to be reminded of the Eisenhower legacy.
    Comfort in this time of sorrow.

    She truly was a remarkable woman and the beauty in her heart always shown through that big smile of hers. I met her the first Sunday I went to First Methodist Church of Denham Springs and every week she said hello and welcome to us. Always looked like she had been dressed by a designer. She will be sorely missed. I’m so glad I got to see her on her 90th birthday and wish her well.
