I'm so sorry. Your Mom was a special lady. It is an honor to know her and all of you. Love and prayers to all!
It has been a very long time since I've seen this wonderful woman. As teenagers she always made me feel welcome in her home when Vanessa and I would hang out. Her smile and her kindness was given so freely. She will be missed by many! My thoughts and prayers to all the family. God Bless you all!
