So sorry to hear. I grew up across the street from Mrs. Dripps and I have such fond memories of sitting on her porch swing with her and chatting for hours. She was a lovely woman and will be missed!

Karen, Bunny, & Dave,

I became a friend of your Mom through My Mom, (Anna Mae Kramer). They worked for many years at the Food Bank at St. Paul of the Cross Monastery and they really connected. I'm sure Mom will be there to welcome her and enjoy that special friendship again.
Every time I talked to your Mom she couldn't get over telling me how good her kids were to her and she really appreciated your love & support and special care; Bunny taking her to her appointments, Karen bringing food down to her and being close by in case she needed something and David for bringing her treats from Shop n' Save on Sundays-especially the Cinnamon Bread. She bragged about her last Birthday Luncheon at the Walnut Grill and how she ate everything on her plate and didn't need a doggie bag.
Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were also very special to her. She talked about them all the time and especially enjoyed that Tea Party downtown recently.
She was so blessed to have such a wonderful family and she truly deserved it. I feel so proud to have called her MY FRIEND. I will miss our phone conversations but I know she no longer has to suffer and I know she was especially recently!
Rest in Peace Dear Friend!
