Just wanted you to know I am thinking about you and praying for you. Know this is a hard time. We are never ready to give our parents up.
She was very special to our family. She and Mother had a very special bond and helped each other thru some hard times.
She sure made good fruit cake. The best I ever had.
Love to you,
Betsy Dyches Cowan

Ms. Marge & family,
Jeff and I never had the privilege of meeting your mother. But, we have heard so many great things about her! We wish to extend our sincere sympathy in your loss. As you now, Jeff and I both lost our mothers and a very, very special sister/sister-in-law (Jackie) this past year. We know that you will miss your mother dearly, but know that the precious memories that you have will live on forever! Praying for you at this time.
