We live n Searcy now.

So many sweet memories of many nights spent with Donna and her family. Lucille was like my second mom. Her house was always neat as a pin and I loved to watch her rake her carpet.
One of my favorite memories was laying in bed and listening to the clock chime in the living room. I loved her and the times I spent in her home.
I’m so sorry Donna. I’m praying for you. I know this is hard. But your right. She’s enjoying heaven now.
