    Momma June how I will miss your stories, your talent, and most of all your smile. I was truly inspired by your knowledge about beading and jewelry making. You taught me so much and is one of the reasons I bought the store from Beth and you. You will always be a part of this, “our store” for as long as it’s here. Love and prayers to all her family, friends and whoever she met in this lifetime. Love Kyle

    Oh JJune , how I will miss your sense of humor . We all talk about how you could do anything from tearing down a wall to building a shed. Also, making beautiful jewelry. My mom enjoyed your political talks. You will be missed and now you are at peace. Love always

    June was a remarkable woman. I admired her and have a few treasured memories going back to my adolescence. I am so sorry that Beth and family have suffered this loss, but know that June’s legacy lives within them. Love, Lory

    Dearest Beth and Family, I am sorry for your loss and heartache. I am sorry sorry that I am just finding this information today. I hope you know how much my family loves yours. June and Payne have always been my grandparents BEST FRIENDS. How sweet grandma Betty’s voice was when she would talk about her best friend June. (And the smile gramps would have when Payne was around!) She LOVED your momma with all her heart. I have so many wonderful memories of her too. I might just be ‘Tommy’s kid’ but I wish I could be there to hug each one of you. To give you a fraction of the love and kindness she always showed me and my family…..know that I am there in spirit as you celebrate the well-lived and well-loved life she lead. God Bless you all–Love, Evie

    June, I have the best childhood memories of you. Whenever I think of you it makes me smile. I was so sad to hear of your passing. We will miss you dearly. You impacted so many lives and you made such an impression on everyone you met. You will most definitely live on through all the lives you have touched. God bless you and your family through this difficult time.
