Marge, Carol, and family, we are so sorry to hear about your mom. I remember for so many years, when I ran into you, or saw you out and about, it was Marge, Carol, and Doris together. Usually shopping, I think. You always looked like you were all enjoying yourselves being out together. When I think of 1 of you, I always think of all 3 of you. I pray for beautiful memories and peace to warm your hearts. Much love, Sherry and Todd Waymire
