My beautiful mom, I miss you everyday! Thank you for all the encouragement and love you gave me these past 57 years! I am grateful to have been by your side in your final days on earth. The greatest gift you left me was an assurance of your faith in Jesus, to know you are in His eternal home where I know I will see you once again! Love from your daughter Cheryl
To the only woman I ever loved,to the one that made life interesting and fun, I’ll see you soon. As always, with LOVE, your husband.
We feel so blessed to have known Lenora for the last few years. The love between her, her husband, and the members of her family tells so much about her character. Our daughter-in-law, Breonna Rossi Tharp, thought the world of her grandmother. Lenora was so kind and accepting of our son, Brent. Our prayers are for all of the family as you begin the grieving process. May you feel God’s comfort and love surrounding you.
Phil & Kathie Tharp
My beautiful Sis, I really miss you but I’m glad you are reunited in heaven with loved ones you so wanted to meet with again and that you are out of pain. I loved that you loved an adventure and we sure had some. You always showed a good time. The most important thing in your life was your family and what a legacy you’ve left, a beautiful loving family. I am so glad to have been able to see you one last time, to have a talk, hold your hand and even share a chuckle or two. When we were able to get we three sisters(You, Donna and I) together one last time on FaceTime I loved that you wanted to dress up and put your lipstick on. You are one classy lady Lenora Boor and I miss and love you dearly. Your baby sister Mindy
