Losing a parent is one of the most difficult things to go through. I remember bringing my Mom, Bessie, to see the family in Lenoir a few times every year. She loved so much, talking to Louise and the Winebarger family every time we came. I still cherish this photo

My sympathy to the family in the loss of your mother! Louise and Earl were kind people to me, as a child growing up in Central Baptist Church. Heaven has gained another dear one.
