My husband and I are sorry for the family's loss. It's been years since we saw 'Mama Rushing' last but I remember her fondly. She always had the biggest and brightest smile and when she smiled at you, you thought you were the only one in the room. She played a huge part in our wedding over 25 years ago. She sat for hours along with Mary Ann attaching sequins and pearls to my wedding hat and dress. They were both gorgeous because of it. I have never forgotten it. My prayers and thoughts are with all the family. I know she's in heaven completely healed and visiting with old friends (although not so old bodies anymore :) ) and family. May the best of your memories bring comfort.

Mrs Rushing must have been a special mother and person. I didn't know her personally, however her daughter, Nancy Callahan, is also a special friend, and I imagine she is much like her Mother. Love to all of you.
