Marilyn, Lemley and Novie,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet mother. She was such a loving mother and friend. We loved visiting your home because she always made us feel like we were at home. I always enjoyed my visits with her on the phone after we moved away. When John would call Michael, she would always ask if it was okay to just stay on the phone and listen to them talk, and of course that was always fine with those two guys. They talked about hunting and fishing and of course all the good food your mom fed them. One of John's favorite memories is meal time at the Easley's. I know through your broken hearts today, you still are happy knowing Micheal and your dad are with her now forever. Your wonderful memories will ease some of your pain, but we know because of the promise we have in Jesus Christ, all pain will be gone when you see her again. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. We love you.
