I don't live in the area but had family there for several generations and as a child spent summers with family near Joplin. Several times in the past I've come upon your website in searches to do with the SW Missouri. This evening, searching who was the pianist at today's memorial service, your website is again the one with the information. Thanks. I just wanted to note I was looking up the pianist because that was a tough, emotional program to handle and in my opinion she did a formidable job.
