My deepest sympathy to the Hoover family. Mrs. Hoover was one of the wisest and strongest women I have ever met. She was a huge part of my childhood and someone I will also admire. She helped me to believe that you can accomplish anything if you try and to always have faith in a God. There are so many memories from picking elderberries for her to make jelly and then we could go swimming . (The chlorine would clean our stained hands lol) She made costumes for me on Halloween and there are so many more wonderful memories that I could go on and on. Mrs. Hoover thank you for everything and rest in peace, you are now an Angel that I am sure will continue to watch over your family and the rest of us.
Love,
Mary Ann Naughton (McKee)

Mom, I know the past few months were difficult on you. I feel now you do not have to suffer any longer. I know also, that you are looking down on all of us and asking why all the fuss. You did a great job raising us all, and I hope you are proud of your accomplishments. Until we meet again, please continue to watch over us all. Thank you for everything, and again I love you.
