I will always remember the big smile your Mom always had. She was such a happy person. I will miss that smile. She never forgot me even when I hadn’t seen her for a while. She was one very special lady. Although I’m not in Indy anymore, I’m still there for you anytime you might need me. You’ll get through this loss and you’ll be stronger each day. It will always hurt but now she’s your guardian angel. She’s always with you. Love you! Your friend, Debbie. 🙏🏻🙏🏻💖💖

Carol, When we are brought into this world we learn love from our parents, both mom and dad. There is no kind of love like that until we realize later in life that God has loved us before we even got here. God gives us strength when we go through our trials in life and tests us with faith. You are a strong Skiles women and a great daughter to your mother. Have faith in the Lord and even when those sad days come.Sing..Sing and Sing to lift you up and the Lord will provide. Love you.
