Thank you - 05.25.13

— THE FAMILY of Jesse Yother want to give thanks for all who extended their sympathy in any way by whatever means, thoughts, prayers, calls, cards, food, flowers, attending his memorial. For all deeds we are grateful. Your caring love and actions were a comfort to us during one of the saddest times of our life. He was a good Christian man and we’ll miss him greatly but trust God will carry us on.

THANK YOU, the students, teachers, coaches and staff! You stood outside for a long time waiting for a funeral procession (for funeral of Daniel Fannin on May 13). They drove by and saw you showing respect to and taking time out of your day to do so! The procession was the norm we are accustomed to; they were in vans and a bus. A general officer stated to me that he would never forget seeing all the children and teachers lining the roadway with the flags. Lastly, he stated Oklahoma and Fort Gibson set the standard for honor and respect!

MY MOTHER died May 9, 2013 at Pleasant Valley Nursing Home. She was 97 years old and had a sharp mind until the last few days of her life. She referred to many of the staff as her “angels.” They loved mother and would give her sincere kisses and I love you’s. They were our family and I cannot thank the owner and staff enough for mother’s care. Then, I want to thank Hope Hospice for their extra care of mother the last few months of her life. They were truly on call 24-7 and a special thanks to their Chaplain Wendall Cox, who spent hours talking and singing to mother about her near journey to heaven and officiated at her funeral.
