I met Moe at Dr. Cheezum's office, and we always had fun in the short time we were together. To her Family: I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Rest in peace, Moe.

I felt blessed to know Moe through her sister Kathy. It was my honor to be invited to a family dinner one time. I never laughed so much in my life. Not to mention how delicious the food was. I have watched and prayed through your family’s journey and battle against pancreatic cancer. I know your mom was proud of all your support and love. My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you honor Moe’s life.

Aunt Moe I will never forget the country breakfasts we shared as a family when we would get together in VA no matter the occasion. You always loved us and never judged us. Thank you for your love and support. I will miss our Facebook talks greatly, but I know you will be watching over us with everyone else. "Hey Moe".......Love You.....

Jenn, I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mom. My heart aches for you and all of your family. I so enjoyed reading your posts on Facebook about trips and purple stride outings with your Mom. From those posts I feel like I knew her and she was such a sweetheart of a lady. Keeping you all in my prayers. We will forever be members of the same purple family. Lots of love, hugs, and prayers. <3 <3 <3
