Our deepest sympathy to Mary's family. To Larry and Michelle we are keeping you in our prayers.
Robin…I am so very sorry about your mom. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. I love you!
I am so sorry to hear about your mother and wife. I read it in the newspaper last night after visitation was over. I would have been there. The services are at 3 and I will be on a bus. They have trouble finding replacements. My thoughts will be with you all at that time and in next few weeks.Love,Ms Hattie
