  1. Aunt Onis was very special to me . She was more than just an aunt; she was like an older sister, a friend, and after Mom passed, she was my mother figure.
    It is hard to believe she has passed. But, now, heaven has gained a special angel. She will forever be in my heart. Rest easy now in the arms of Jesus Aunt Onis, no more pains or sickness. Love you.

  2. Mom,
    Although I’ve Only Been In The Family For Just A Little While,
    You Welcomed Me With Opened Arms…
    Will Truly Miss Our Visits,Your Beautiful Smile And Our Awesome Talks About Anything And Everything ❤
    I Know Your Flying High With The Angels🙏
    Thank You , Mom

  3. It was by accident that I found that my friend of so long ago has passed on. Onis Meredith was my childhood into teen age years playmate. We walked to school and back home again together. She lived on the farm next to me. Her mother had died at an early age and her older sister and father took care of her. We were distant cousins. I “stood up” with her at her wedding to Guerman (not sure about the spelling of his first name) in Brownsville. She married young. I lost touch with her after moving to Louisville. She came to one of our family reunions. I had not seen her in a long time. I connected with her a few years ago by phone. I am sorry I did not know any of her children. If any who read this could contact me by email or phone I sure would be so happy to hear from them. Meanwhile, I am grieving for my dear friend. Jonell (Meredith) Mehr in North Kingstown, R.I.
