    One of the dearest people I ever met. Princess House was our first meeting but she quickly became a friend. We got our first Shih Tzu from her and she named her ET. That name stuck and we enjoyed her for 16 years. My heart goes out to her children and families. She was one in a million. God bless you all.

    I have such fond memories of weekends at the lake with the Stampers and Masters. Every once in a while I will break out the old home movies. There is my Mom Norma Stamper in her red swimsuit and Marion in her turquoise one braving the rocky terrain to get to the dock. Sun and fun and water skiing. Please allow those memories to be of some comfort.
