    John, I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I'm so glad I stopped to see her the last time I was in Laramie. We had a nice visit tho much too short. I remember when your family joined us at church and we met your family. You all and especially Ivy was so sweet, friendly and kind. I was very shy but you always tried to be my friend, I wasn't always so kind. It will be an adjustment not having your mom around especially with your dad and beautiful wife already gone but at least you have your two boys, daughter-in-law and grand-children. Prayers and the comfort of peace be with you at this time.

    I met Ivy last summer when I interviewed her for an internship at the Laramie Plains Civic Center. I very much enjoyed talking with her about Laramie history and of course the East Side School (which became the civic center). My condolences to her family, Ivy was indeed a great lady.

    Sister Pearce was always kind to a young man who would visit her at the church while she worked. She talked with me about life , living, being a good person, and many other things. I greatly appreciated her kindness to a young man who needed a friend. Angels do exist. Thank-you Ivy. My condolences John and family. Steve Wood.
