I'm so sorry to hear of your mom, Jim. She reminded me so much of my mom - the things she did and said. Mom made it to 93, in spite of a lot of her illogical ideas. :-)

I particularly remember when you had to fish the riding mower out of the pond. She was a hoot. You've been a good son and a testimony to your good upbringing.

It's hard to lose a mom and to become an orphan - no matter what the age. We were blessed to have them for a lot of years.

May the Lord comfort you and Verena and please know that my heartfelt thoughts are with you.

Jimmy & Verena
Our deepest condolences and prayers God will bring you peace and comfort in the days ahead. I have so many fond memories of going to Uncle Grady & Aunt Bessie's house and stopping to talk to her when she was outside working in the yard. She loved her dogs and kittys. Memories I will cherish forever
