I HAVE ALREADY SAID I AM SORRY FOR LOSE OF YOUR MOTHER, RANDY AND KEVIN AND WIFE TO DAVID. I REMEMBER THIS ONE THING THAT WILL FOREVER REMAIN IN MY MIND. JANET TAUGHT ME TO CAN VEGETABLES. SHE WAS THERE AS A MOTHER WHENEVER I MOVED TO IOWA IN 1983 AFTER LEAVING ARKANSAS. I HAVE VERY FOND MEMORIES OF THE MANY YEARS ON THE FARM WITH JANET. SHE WAS ALWAYS A BIG PART OF MY LIFE. I WILL MISS HER ON TEXTING MESSAGES WITH ME AND ALWAYS LOVED BIRTHDAY CARDS FROM HER
Randy and Kevin, so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Keeping you and your families in our prayers.
