Dear Janice, Brenda and Bobby, I was saddened to learn of your mother's passing. Life will not be the same for any of us who new and loved her. She always made me feel loved and welcome whenever I was in her company and it was a pleasure to talk to her. God bless and comfort you all in the days ahead. I know she will be greatly missed.
