My heart aches for all the children of Max and Millie Wheat. God has certainly blessed you with a wonderful Mother for a long time but it is never easy to lose her. I loved and respected both your parents very much. I have a lot of great memories of your Family at our time together at Lyford Bible Church and parties at your house that they hosted . Just a plain family having and sharing love all around. Ponder your precious memories and know I will be praying for you all. Terry
