Gloria, Diann, Sylvia, Gail and families, We are with you in spirit today. We have to go to Greenwood to be with DuPre's mom and regret we are unable to come to the service. We appreciated the time we spent with you all and especially seeing your mom's sweet smile one more time two weeks ago. You all did so very much...all anyone could do to help her make her transition. Now, do for yourselves and relish in the memories you have working together to help her. May God's presence comfort you all. We hope you all will call us when you are in Anderson visiting with Crystal and her family and brother. It would be great to see you and spend more time. We will look forward to being together when it happens. Love you very much, Manella
