Robbie and Sally,
I remember as a child having fun times when our families visited together in your home. Your mother, Lynn, was so welcoming and kind and always smiling. As an older adult, I enjoyed the short visits I had reminiscing with her---I even learned a couple things I did not know! I'm sure she and my mother, Gladys, are again visiting and catching up on old times.
May the healing gifts of time and the timeless love of God carry you you gently through the loss you're feeling now. Keith and I send heartfelt sympathy and caring prayers for you and your family. Diane Vollintine Pleasants
