My sincere condolences, she was such a gracious lady. I will miss the few visits I was able to make. She was a good listener and had the experience to empathize. Keeper of secrets is true. May God bless you at this time.

What a beautiful write up on your mother, Joanne. My condolences to you and your family. She was a wonderful lady and I'm glad I had the pleasure of knowing her. My father always admired her and spoke highly of who she was. My thoughts are with you.

So long Miss G. You live inside of me as the memory of my sub Mom up the road in Bingham. You were a sun in that town and the hearts of those lucky enough to know you. I will always cherish the beautiful meals, the private chats, your children hammering out a bluegrass tune, asking Billy what key was in a song that I could not grasp, and a door that was always open. I don't know what happens when we leave but my general faith surely believes that a soul like yours is busy somewhere. We send our humble condolences to all.

To the Gibson family - What a beautiful testimonial for a great woman. I remember Mrs. G when growing up in Concord and GG was a classmate. I'm so sorry to learn of his passing as well as Judy's. Mom's shouldn't outlive their children but it seems Mrs. G carried on with courage, grace and found joy in life. My deepest sympathy to Joanne, Billy and the entire Gibson extended family. Your Mom/Grandmother/Great grandmother lived a full life. How fortunate you are to have those memories and to have had her in your lives for as long as you did. May smiles come with your memories as the tears dry from your sorrow.
