Dwight and I will always have fond memories of your Mom. She would call to see how Joy and Phil were doing and she always asked me how Dwight was. If I was not at home, she would talk with Dwight.

Your Mom was a great person. My Mom once said to me, that your Mother would always wait for you, Wesley, and Jason at the bus stop. Joy said no kids could have asked for a better Mom.

Our love and prayers are with you and your family, Thomas and Catherine, and your Aunt Jeannette and Uncles Sam and Billy.

Prayers and love, Debbie and Dwight.
