Hi Meg, Cathy & Ronnie,

The good thing about memories, is that even though I am thousands of miles away, I will always have those good times with me.
The times when I was a kid when your Mom and Dad came with your family to Tennessee to visit. The summer that I was 13 and stayed at your house in Columbia, SC. The time that Diego and I came to your house in Miami that August in the 1970's.
And seeing my mother, Mary (Bobo) and your mom enjoying each other and being good friends for one another throughout the years.

The times of seeing Aunt Charlene and feeling the comfort of her presence.

I am very fortunate that she was my aunt.

Love, your cousin, Jon

So sorry Meg and Cathy for the loss of your precious Mother and the Grandchildren that loved her so much. Praying that God will give you peace in knowing she’s in perfect hands now. It’s not goodby it’s just we’ll see her later. Such a blessing even in her battle with dementia. Thank you for letting me be a part of helping take care of her.
I loved her too.
Kay Ward ❤️💔💜
