My Dearest Deidre, I pray the words I write are comforting. A loving mother as she will always be cherished. Continue the love with memories that will always be forever and ever. Deidre, I found these Bible verses so befitting.
Love,

Cynthia Gatewood

Carolyn bought me two crystal candle holders for my birthday over fifteen years ago. I still bring them out for special occasions and I think of her. Everything she did was with class. I will always remember her beautiful smile and soft voice. I pray for God's love and peace upon her loved ones .
