Bobby, Kris, Clint & Kyle,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m keeping the family in my prayers. As I was praying for Wanda before she passed I remembered her being Matthew ‘s teacher in daycare. She had him spoiled rotten and she had a special name she gave him “Big M”. I cherished having godly mothers take care of my children. I pray the Lord gives you comfort in the coming days.
