Dear Linda, Elaine and James and Families,
Sorry for your mom's passing and our thoughts and prayers will be with you and your families. Sylvia loved her daylilies, her garden, and she enjoyed her family and husband. Edna and Mac had the best neighbors during their middle age years out there on Upland Dr. The memories of all the stories each family told and shared in their daily lives were priceless. Good neighbors are hard to come by. 95 years what a bench mark for a good life well lived. Happy times at her 90th birthday celebration eating bar-be-q and sides and having cake and blue bell ice cream for desert. What a treat with family and friends all present. Cricket was her buddy later at her wonderful home in Katy, he was her best friend when she was not busy with family. Now she is with Pat and Kenneth, her mom and brothers and sisters. Blessings and Prayers for hope and peace during this time of her loss.
