Your Mother was a very sweet, beautiful, and loving lady. I'm very sorry. She will be greatly missed. When I was little I always looked at her house as we drove by. I liked to see her decorations especially the Easter egg tree. You all are a wonderful family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers and always in my heart. With sympathy and love, Debbie
