I've know you since you were young and you, Mark, and Jimmy went to Highland Baptist , you and Kathy, my daughter were good friends for many years! You've always been special to me and after we reconnected on FB a few yrs ago, I've gotten to see the young lady you grew and blossomed into, as a Mother, Grandmother, friend and listening to you talk about your church and church family and friends , I could tell you were still the same sweet caring girl you'd been since your youth! Rest peaceful in God's arms! Ms. Dotty
