Dear Sue ,

I was so sad to hear about Marie’s passing. I have so many memories from all the years living across the street! Your mom was such a great seamstress and we often had to call her for help! I told my mom about Mazie and she got real quiet and a tear slipped down her face...while she is having trouble remembering she remembered Mazie!! Trey loves your mom too —- not as much as he loved Maryland though 😢

Our love ❤️ is with you!!

Sue...I am sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I remember your mom and my grandmother, Julia Hood, taking us to the azalea parade when we were young girls! I am praying for the Lord to bring you peace and comfort during this time.
