I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was such a sweet, vital lady, full of life, always smiling & helping any one out. I remember going to her house as a young teenager, always feeling loved & warmly welcomed into her home & playing all kinds of games like penny ante poker, 31, go fish, etc. She will be greatly missed by all who new her. I love you guys. Sherry Blakeney Abbott sister to Donna Redding, Gary Redding's sister in law. If any of you need anything, call on me, I'm here for all of you.
