We are sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. We so enjoyed knowing her. She was a lot of fun at Bingo and other Senior activities. We also remember working out in the pool at Legacy. We saw her just a week before her passing. We have missed her and will miss her even more now. We are sorry we weren't able to attend the services yesterday. My husband works now and we weren't sure of the weather and getting there when we aren't familiar with the area. Greg and Mary Kaufman (from the Eagle Mtn. Seniors). I'm sure all the Seniors feel the same way!

I remember when I was younger sleeping over at grandma's and watching movies on VHS. Grandma probably didn't understand how we could watch the same movies on repeat but would let us do it anyways. I love you grandma mangum! Rest in paradise... till I see you again.
