Vonna, Beth, Larry & Di: This is a hard time I know. I really liked your mom and I remember a time she really helped me out. I'm so thankful that God allowed me to be "part" of your family and gave me my best friend ever. I love you all. May you find peace and laughter at this time in each other. Love always.
