Coren, Natanna and De,
Your Mom was the most loving and thoughtful lady. She always welcomed me into your home with love and a smile. I went to visit Coren for two weeks in Alabama and in Ohio. I looked to her as a second Mom.
Blessings to you three as you deal with her loss. You are forever in my heart.
