Wishing to extend my sympathies to the family of Inez Egbert. As a young high school student, I lived next to Lossie and Lula Bollinger in Rushville, IL. I think I met all of their children and grandchildren at one time or another . I remember Joan coming to visit one summer and talking about her family. I am thinking of all of you at this time. Please enjoy all the wonderful memories you have of your mother/grandmother. She lived a long life.

I feel incredibly grateful to have seen grandma the Saturday before she passed. Spending time with family this trip is a testament to the incredible lives she and grandpa helped create. I hope she is at peace and much happier to be reunited with grandpa.

I never met Mrs Egbert but we heard about them from daughter Pat and Tricia. In her picture she certainly appears to have been a most interesting person. Our sympathies go out to all of the family. While her life has ceased, the wonderful memories go on.

Dear Pat and Family, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. May God bless you and let you remember the good memories. It's hard to understand a loss like yours, but hope you know that others are thinking of you. I lost my mother on September 26, 2012. It will soon be 2 years. The sting doesn't go away soon.
Frank and Bobbie Thompson
