Dear Rick and all the family of Mrs. Ettinger, Please accept my deepest condolences in the passing of Mrs. Ettinger. She always was very nice to me when I would see her. One thing I know for sure was she was devoted to her family and also very good friends with the ladies she would take places. She was always dressed impeccably and not a hair out of place. She was one class act!
Rest in peace, Mrs. Ettinger

Richard, Carol, and Jennifer-
"Grandma" was a wonderful, beautiful lady who I will always carry in my heart. I'll always remember her smile, her hugs, and all those lunches at McDonald's after church. My love and prayers are with you all.
Lots of Love,
Robbie Shriver and Family
