Thank you - 05.11.13

— ON BEHALF OF our family, I would like to extend sincerest appreciation to everyone at Cornerstone Funeral Home and Crematory for your kindness and compassion during the loss of our mother, Tilda M. Price.

To everyone involved at Muskogee Marble and Granite, especially Christie Geisler, thank you for your patience, attention to detail and knowledgeable assistance. To the two young men (TJ and Ryan, maybe?) who placed the monument at Greenhill Cemetery, your concern for getting it set “just right” meant a great deal. Bob Logston, you were a good friend and neighbor to mom and we are forever grateful. Georgia Coy, thank you so much for your help and concern. To Kenneth Blackburn and James Keasling, mom loved her home, thank you so much for helping her stay there 27 years.

To everyone who extended their sympathy in any way, by whatever means, we are grateful for your efforts to offer comfort during one of the saddest times of our lives.

Janice Howard and family

MEMBERS OF THE planning committee, Bacone College Associate Degree Nursing Alumni, friends and family want to express our appreciation to the persons who made the 50th Reunion a success this past Saturday, May 4, at the Bacone College Commons.

The event allowed alumni, family and friends of the nursing program to enjoy the opportunity to reminisce about their experiences as students and faculty, hear stories of the founding of the program in 1963, and celebrated 50 years of the nursing program’s existence, the first associate degree nursing program in Oklahoma. Local alumni joined alumni and families who came from great distances and many states to share in this once-in-a-lifetime event honoring the college and the 1,600 nursing graduates. Many nursing graduates have served the greater Muskogee area and Northeast Oklahoma to alleviate the nursing shortage over the years.

Special thanks is due to those who provided funds for the event including the lovely luncheon: CCOM Medical Group, Dr. Dennis Rivero, Soper Eye Center, Global Health Inc., EASTAR Health Systems, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Smith, Ann Ong, Oklahoma Nurses Association Region 3, Advanced Urology and Wellness Center, Sodexo Catering. Without the labor-intensive planning committee’s work over the past six months and the generosity of many, the event would not have happened nor have been such a wonderful event. Many thanks to many folks.

Peggy Parsons

and members of the planning committee
