  1. I am sorry to hear about the passing of Noreen. Noreen used to ride with me to work everyday to Grand Island back in the 80’s. She was always very generous with her Christmas Gift of a bottle of Whiskey.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss!! What a neat lady! I got to spend time with her and talk to her quite a bit when Ron was in the hospital. I know she didn’t want to put anyone out w a big funeral but I think it would have been fitting for someone with such a big heart!! Gods blessings to you all!!

  6. We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. We are happy to have known her. We had forgotten she came from Ireland, as did Bill’s forefathers. May God grant you peace and comfort in this time of loss.
    Sincerely, your Hastings neighbors,
    Bill and Joan Primrose
