Dear Bob, Linda and Families,
I'm very sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. My sincere condolences to you all.
I've loved her as long as I can remember. I loved sitting on her lap and her rocking me at a very early age. I enjoyed the lengthy conversations we had through out the years when I would catch her out on her front porch. Lots of great memories!
God's Blessings to all,
Love, Randy Kissell
