Where do I begin. The Van Eperen basement was the place to be in the late 70's. Theresa and Hank treated everyone who came into their house like they were their own. There was always plenty of beer to drink and food to eat, they made sure of that. Teresa loved to talk to Ray and his friends about girls. She would have made a great match maker. I will miss her and the memories that she gave me.

Ray, God will provide the light to bring infinite peace to your mother's soul. He will irradiate the light to you by giving calm and faith.

I have lost my best friend for so many years. We shared tears, and laughs. We found humor in just about everything we did. I will miss her so much, but my brother took "my line" and just like when she was here, I will talk to you all the time like I promised you yesterday. Love you mom

. Grandma and I also share a love for shopping. She would go shopping and if something didn’t fit she would give me some clothes or jewelry. Grandma and I also shared a love for Christmas. We shared our Santa Claus Christmas and our family Christmas with grandma every year. Grandma always had presents that filled her whole living room. She started preparing for Christmas the day after for the following year. She loved her whole family in one room and she could spoil them rotten. While growing up grandma always thought Cory and I would be the ones who would have big families in 2006 Madison became grandmas first great grand child. She could not be happier.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My eyes look just like my grandmas. She use to call them our puppy dog eyes. We also shared another trait as she would put it “Big Dupas” must be our polish trait. We also share a long bony back. As our looks developed more similar triats so did our relationship. Grandma was extremely easy to talk to and she gave me good advice that always made me feel good. As I was going through boyfriends grandma always told me that my life was just like hers and she knew all these guys that I dated were not the ones. She told me you will look at your husband a lot differently. You are going to look at him and just know. Not to long after my now husband walked into my life. Grandma was right! I took one look at this man and I just knew he was the one for me. We both fell in love with a man in the military.

Not only did grandma and I share the same name we also shared a lot of other similarities. When I was young I use to love running in circles around grandmas house. She use to run the opposite way to scare me and run after me. We all knew grandma loved hanging out with her grandchildren but she also loved those sweets. Just like grandma I could go all day eating sweets. I remember every time we left grandmas house we would leave with at least two bags of baked goods and left over food. My all time favorite are grandmas cookies and pumpkin pie. As I grew older it also became apparent that grandma and I started to look similar as well.

I miss my Mother so much. She was the best Mother a son could have. Now I can talk to Mom any time I want and thats a good thing. Miss you Mom.

Dear Tom and family, Barb and I are so sorry to hear about your mom! It seems like I spent more time at your parents basement than I did at my own house. Your mom was always so nice and didn't mind me going in the refrigerator. My condolences again, Steve and Barb Horn

Mrs. Van Eperen-- Although we have never met directly, my family knows your daughter well and respects her very much. She is a very kind, generous and encouraging woman. While my wife and I are relatively new to parenting, we've already learned that these characteristics are passed on by parents. Lynn Marie is proof that you did a great job as a mother. Rest in peace, Mrs. Van Eperen.

Tom - Your mom was a very special person. Though I didn't see her often, we always had nice conversations (about food of course). I'm so sorry we cannot attend the service on Tuesday. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love and Prayers, Dona
