Jeannie John and Mary Ellen, I am deeply sorry for mom's dead, I remember her as a very inteligent and loving mother. I loved the delicious dinners she made, Can't forget her potato salad and leyer lettuce salad, I think she did everything with love. I will pray for her. Love. Your ecuadorian sister Caty.

Carolyn was my friend for 87 years and I will miss her dearly and have wonderful memories. We met in 2nd grade, went through school together, were roommates and worked together at West Liberty. I was her bride's maid and we kept in touch all these years. Her birthday was March 1st. Mine was March 2nd. As kids we always played hookey those two days and in later years never forgot to call each other then. I moved to California and we had some nice visits in both directions which, of course, included Morris and his wry sense of humor. At age 93 my only consolation is that I will be joining her sometime soon

The loss of my good friend John's mother saddens me. I enjoyed many pleasant, intelligent talks with Carolyn over the years. She welcomed me into the Stamm house not as a guest but as a member of the family, and I will never forget her kindness and hospitality. RIP.
