Carolyn, I just found your mother's obit today...I'm so sorry to hear of her passing...I really regret that I missed her service by less than a week; had I known sooner, I surely would have been there. In the relatively short time that I knew you and your family, both your mother and your father treated me like they had known me all of my life. Please accept my condolences on her passing. May God Bless you and your family. Sincerely, Robert Gathright
