Mr.Phillips, Sue (Tom) and Lou (Warren) and family.. My heart breaks with all of you. I pray the Lord will give you comfort as you mourn the loss off your sweet Momma. I have many memories of me walking in the back door and always seeing Mrs. Pat in the kitchen and she would smile and say well hi Debbie. She was a neighborhood Mom to a lot of us, We were more of an extended family in our neighborhood. I pray that all the memories of your sweet Momma will keep your heart warmed and give you comfort.
I love you all,
Debbie Sheldon
