I worked with Fay at Bell on Ashland, late 60's. She was such a sweet lady to this shell shocked kid, fresh out in the working world. I remember one time I was so sick, and she took me home, as I didn't even think I could drive. Looks like I also worked with your daughter, Shannon, at Aldine Transportation. Sure wish I had known the connection then. You were blessed with many years with her and that probably makes you miss her even more. May our Lord comfort you during the coming days.

Mom was the last surviving member of her generation on both sides of the family. I miss all the wonderful days working with her in her gardens. She received many compliments from her neighbors. I miss the holidays when I got up early with mom to prepare big meals for the family. I was so fortuante to spend so many wonderful days and hours with her. I also miss our long conversations. I will always be grateful for her dedication to the family Goodbye mom. You're with dad, Paul, Uncle Mike and Aunt Pat, and Mr Hargrave, in a much better place.
