Our sincere condolences to the family during this sad time. I fondly remember delivering the daily newspaper to the Bigford house in 1961 as a 6th grader and getting picked on by Vaune and her husband. It was a special time.
Tom, Mary, Thomas, John and Mike Upton

Our deepest Sympathy in the passing of your Mother. I've always enjoyed when your Mother came in to Nowers to shop we always had a nice visit and when my father was alive he would come out to visit also. She told me once that she grow up in a home that was located where the Earlville Cemetery is now and she said she will be buried there I never forgot that , I thought it was so interesting. Our Sympathy from all of us at Nowers Custom Slaughtering.
