Another person that I grew up with. Loved her dearly. She was one of the sweetest people on earth. It is so sad that she and Joanne passed away so close together. I know without a doubt that they are celebrating with their Lord and Savior and they are at peace. May God be with you Agnes and with her children and grandchildren in the months ahead without her. Love you all sooo much. May you rest in peace Iva Lou.

My sincere and deepest sympathy to Iva's family. She was a beautiful person outside and from deep within. I have known Iva, her parents and siblings and her in-laws, most of my life. I attended church with her for many years, and to me she had her priorities in order because God was always first, and then her family and others. As you all travel this path in life, called grief, the Great Comforter will be traveling beside you and guiding each of you along the way. I am praying for each family member to be consoled during this difficult time.
