Dean and Tim,
So sorry for your loss. I have many fonds memories of your mom, while I was growing up, and have thought of your family often over the years. Connie has waited a long time for Ebbs to join her... and I am sure they are having one heck of a time together again! Love and prayers to you and your families!

She was the best mom I could ask for, I’ll miss her strength and her guidance through all my years. She was always welcoming, always helped others and enjoyed the company of many good friends throughout the years.
