Tim & Family
I was saddened to hear of your mom's passing. I have fond memories of us visiting each other when we were growing up in Buffalo Cove (me) and Nubbing Creek. Many times in the summer she & Sylvia would come and spend a week with me and we would always have a good time. Being an only child and not having many close neighbors to play with I was always thrilled when these special cousins came to visit.
Please know that my thoughts & prayers continue to be with you and all of the extended family.
Judy
