Michael, Our sympathy goes out to you on the loss of your sweet Mother. I was unaware that she was suffering from Cancer. The last time I saw Vaughn and Pat was at Aunt Polly's funeral. Although I didn't know your Mom well, I alway admired her. She took such good care of Vaughn during his sickness and was a good daughter-in-law to Aunt Bobbie. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dr. Price was her doctor, I met her there. What a wonderful person. I didn't know she was so sick until we talked one day. She never complained. She will be missed. Ola Tucker
