"Two words can never describe how big of an impact you all have made! Thank you so much for the care and thoughtfulness you gave dad. Thanks for your care for both mom and dad, especially dad. Thanks for the gooseberry pie, his early morning breakfast, and encouraging him in his grumpy and grieving times. You were all gifts to our entire family. "

Dare to Dream


On Friday, Dec. 21, 2019, Ernie Smith turned 101 years old. How did he celebrate? He flew a plane! In 2017, the Guinness Book of World Records named Mr. Ernie Smith the official world's oldest active pilot. That was until he suffered a minor stroke and could no longer pass the medical exam to be certified to fly.


In 1947 Nell Brashier and our very own Betty Lochbrunner met in Mississippi while both of their husbands were attending trade school. Nell and Betty hit it off! They became lifelong friends and didn’t even realize that they would have so many things in common. Nell had a son and in that same year Betty had twins.
