I am sending deepest sympathy for the death of Mae. I only sat with her for two hours the week of her passing and what I seen in Mae was a very sweet and caring person. She put a smile on my face even though she wasn't feeling well. I am blessed for having only got to sit with her those two hours. God bless you all and my He give you peace and comfort at this time.

I will always remember you (of course I will) The shape of my hand in the shape of a Turkey, I remember you. Happy to get out of school and run across the street to Grandma's house, I remember you. Your zest for life, what was good and correct me when I was wrong, I remember you. The astonishment on your face after many years of not seeing you, I remember you. A day won't go by that I won't ever, Remember you.

Love Your Grand Son Jeremy & (Gennell)

Hello to all the wonderful "Shupe Family".
Your Mom a kind sweet lady. In 1999 when I first met her as an adult in her home in Amanda, I walked in the front door and Mae stated "Another, "Short Shupe,!!" Then I received a big hug.  That was a marvelous greeting. I know that you all have special memories, that you will cherish forever.
Huggs for all.
