We are sorry to hear of the loss of Nora. Unfortunately I (John) do not know Nora’s family, but Nora and me were first cousins. Her father, Kelly, was my mother’s half-brother. My mother was Minnie Risner from Salyersville, Kentucky. Her memories will live with you forever. Hopefully we will meet the family someday as we are in the area often. We will keep the family in our prayers through this time of sorrow.
Rickey and Sarah, sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids. God Bless, Heidi Them (Deedles)
So very sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. Please accept the deepest sympathies from an old classmate and friend of many years ago. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Please accept our sympathies for the loss of your beloved. We praise the Lord she is resting in the arms of her Savior for eternity.
While we never met Nora in person, we are surprised to learn that she was my fourth cousin through my mother’s family (we share our third gr-grandfather, Isaac Lykins) originally from West Liberty, Kentucky. I regret not learning this until after her passing.
We are praying for you and your family during your time of sorrow. May God fill your days with comfort only He can bring.
Ron Ross & wife Jan
