    Dear John,
    Mildred ( my Mom) and I were so sad to hear about the loss of your Mom. She was such a friendly, kind and cheerful lunch companion for my Mom at Assisted Living East. She always had a smile on her face even when she wasn’t feeling all that well. She always impressed me with her interest in others, her friendliness and curiosity, and her ability to find humor when life dealt her tough blows to her health. AND she was always dressed to the nines–your contribution, I imagine. My Mom and I will both miss her so much. I feel so fortunate that I had the opportunity to get to know her. I will be thinking of you and your family at this very tender time.
    With heartfelt sympathy,
    Donna Schreiner on behalf of Mildred Schreiner

    Hi John, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is never easy losing a loved one. My mom enjoyed her visits with your mom so much. While I did not visit as often, I also loved each visit I had. Your mom was sharp, witty, and so beautiful. I hope we can catch up with you sometime. Sincerely, Cynthia (Mary Seabaugh’s daughter)

    Dear John and family,

    On behalf of myself and my Mom, Freda Estes, I want to extend to you our deepest condolences on the passing of Aunt Imogene. I have many pictures of her and remember her as a truly beautiful person in every way possible. I have many fond memories of going to your farm with Grandma Ollie to visit. I am truly proud of my Seabaugh family heritage.
    Our prayers are with all of you.
    God Bless

    John, Tammy, & Josie:
    We are so sorry for your loss. We have many memories with both, Mr and Mrs. Seabuagh along with the family that we will hold dear in our hearts. They were always second grandparents to our girls; we have many pictures with them. Laura had Kyle and we have many pictures with them also. ……and let’s not forget about Josie we have many memories there also. We had fun, laughs, and maybe a few tears together; but memories will hold dear in our hearts.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers with love always.
