Carole, the last time I saw your parents was at the Capitol and we talked about you. I believe that you were in school in Lubbock. We all 3 were proud of you. They both looked great. I am sorry that you lost her, it is always hard when you lose your mother. She was a really good person and I know that she is in a better place. My heart hurts for you and your pain. God grant you and your family comfort and peace during this period.
