Sad to read about your mom's passing. Sam and Sissy were good friends of my parents (Vera & Woody Miller) and they were at our house often with Phone Company people. Always sharing stories and creating an atmosphere of fun and laughter. Their easy going personalities made them among my favorites of people in our home. Deepest sympathy to you and your family.

We're so so sorry to hear about your Mom's passing, however we know that she's thrilled to be with your Dad, Sam. We'll never forget the two of them - they were down to earth, kind, generous and fun to be around. Their love for each other and you was obvious and they were so proud of you!
