I am so sorry to read about your mother. I have some great memories of Mrs Deavers. When Gin and I were doing lots of things together. I remember the long nights at the family house putting together a puzzle, butchering hogs or cutting wood for Gin's house with your dad. Those were the good old days. I fell in love with the whole family. I've seen your mom out with Penny or Gin and she never forgot who I was. My family will say prayers to help you all through this time of need. May GOD be with each and every one of you. Special love From Kay & LLoyd Moore.
