    Kevin, We are deeply sorry for the loss of your mother. As you know this hits very close to home for me, not being sure of my mother’s status when I made an emergency trip home several weeks ago. Loss of a parent is hard at any age, but I believe your faith will see you through during this time of grief.

    Willard, SueAnn and Kevin;

    I am so sorry to hear of Donna’s Passing. I have many fond memories of her and your whole family. I remember her working at Turners and somehow never wrote anything down and always got it right. She was such a sweet lady. Seems that every time we came home we would see Mom and Dad Miller together and they always ask about our family. That always brought back memories from my youth which I will always cherish. May God bless your family and comfort you at this time. I know God has a special place prepared for her.

    Much Love from Texas
    Daryl & Carolyn
