Crystal, Brenda, Stephen and Dawn,
I send my deepest sympathy to you and your families.
I have many fond memories of your Mom growing up. We would all pile into the blue Pontiac. She was a great lady with a big smile!
As an adult when I would see her in the grocery store she always greeted me with that smile. I would give her a hug and she would always fill me in on how everyone was. I know she will be missed by many. May she rest in peace.
My heart goes out to you all.
With love and sympathy,
