    We were friends and customers of your parents years ago. We thought a lot of both of them. I am so sorry you have lost both of them, but I’m happy they are together again !

    If God ever allowed an angel to live on earth, it was Ina Jo. She truly had a servant’s heart, always looking to see what she could do for others rather than herself. She will be greatly missed!!! She is now with her Heavenly father and the man of her dreams, Ron. What a great reunion day that will be when we all will be able to see each other again and live together with God for eternity!!!! Our prayers and thoughts are with Michael, Mark and their families.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet precious Mother. She was a close friend to me and so many others. She loved you both and was so proud of all of you! How happy she must be today. Heaven certainly gained a special Angel and we will all miss her.

    Mickael and Mark, Ron and Ina were two of my closest friends. We go back to when you two were just little boys, running back and forth to get us things at the gift shows.I am going to miss Ina so much. She spent her entire life doing for others. I can just hear Ron saying, “Here she comes, here she comes. She is in heaven now and all she can hear is “You have done a good job, my good and faithful servant. Ron and Ina raised two wonderful sons. I could write a book. A big part of me died when she went home. Love you.
