Condolences to your family. I am so glad that I was able to get to know Ardyth. She helped grade many English papers for me and shared some of her clothes with me when changing her hair color caused her to change her wardrobe colors. She was such a gracious lady.

Losing Ardee is a bit like losing my mom again. She and my mom, Jan Bulls Roehr, were truly "Soul Sisters" and I grew up knowing that anything related to the home could really only be done perfectly by Ardyth. The friendship they had was unique and precious beyond words. I feel so fortunate to have been around them both when they shared the joys and challenges of their later years. And indeed my true consolation now is thinking of them "sitting spiritual knee to spiritual knee" chuckling about some silly escapade we who are left behind in this world of dust, are mixed up in. My favorite quote is "Let your heart burn with loving-kindness for all who may cross your path." Ardee exemplified these words.

Ardyth was such a caring big sister to her sis (and my friend) Linda and I when we were best friends from our 2nd grade to 6th grade and the many following years when I visited them in Pampa. She always had a smile and encouraging words for us. I saw her again a few years ago and enjoyed that same personality. I know she is rejoicing in heaven.

I certainly remember you. I adored Linda and to be with the two of you made me feel really special. Thank you for writing.
