My fondest memory of you was when you danced down the hall at the hospital to a test. When I told you I loved you before I ever met you, your expression was priceless!! You were fun, funny, spunky and most of all, you were Classy!! You will never be forgotten and missed by us all. May you dance in the streets of heaven until we meet again.

Until this day, I still called her Mrs. Conover, that shows how long I’ve known this sweet, funny, lady. Always happy and uplifting when we were kids, except when KRISTIN and I didn’t follow the rules, then she became a parent. She lived her children and always did for them, as much as she could, as a single parent. She was always present in her children’s lives and then in her grandchildren’s, birthday parties, Christmas’s etc. , never missed a one. She was very lucky to meet her three great grandchildren and they were fortunate to have her. KRISTIN it’s times like this, that I wish I had the words to say, but there are no words, to take away your pain. You and your Mom have many great memories together, keep them in your heart and enjoy the memories. ❤️ You my friend. Prayers for you and your family.🙏🙏💙

Mom, You are truly missed by all. You gave so much love,happiness to the whole family. You enjoyed everyone coming over to visit. Mom made sure we all had everything we needed. She never wanted to waste a thing. She saved everything so we all could have what we needed growing up. Today we all find ourselves following what Mom did save save save. Don’t throw that away. We heard that daily. We will miss your laughs, jokes, love Mom. I know your free of pain and in Gods beautiful kingdom. Love and miss you Mom, Shannon

My dear mother, I can't describe how much I will miss you. You gave me a lot of courage and hope when I was a young man. I will miss making those calls daily after work at 5:09. You're an inspiration to all and especially your family and friends. God bless you mom. Love you always, your favorite and only son.

Virginia Martin, or Mrs Conover as I still think of her, was a one of a kind person. A funny lady with a big heart. My folks and the rest of the neighborhood that now resides in heaven will greet her with a martini and then start dancing. She was blessed to have met her latest great grand child. She will be missed.

Mom I’ll miss you today, tomorrow and always. We were so close and shared so many memories. Our trips to Great Britain and the Far East. We spent every holiday and every milestone together. The birth of my kids and your great grandkids. Your last conscience day on Earth was when you met your newborn great grandson Randy. I know you said no tears as you are free of pain and in time I hope to keep that promise. I’m certain you’ve reunited with so many love ones on the other side. What a great reunion. Send all of us signs that your spirit is around. Much love, Kristin
