I was saddened to learn of your mothers passing and unfortunately did not learn of the event and services until after the fact. Although it has been more years than I wish to admit since I met you and your mother while I was a goofy youngun working for the State, I remember her caring nature. I don't pray often but will include you and your extended family in them. You were so fortunate to have had your mother in your life for such a long time.

Respectfully submitted,

Our prayers are with you, Lori and Greg. I had great memories growing up and your mom was such a great friend to my mom. Momma talked about playing uno on New Year Eve and always watching out for her. I know she lived a great life and she is enjoying at least 9 holes of golf with your dad. She will be missed.
