    Dear family, your mother was a very sweet lady. She came to Kentucky a few times with Riley and Linda. She was here and helped us celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. My mom passed away at 83 from brain cancer. You mom was sure blessed with a long life. Linda’s family here in Kentucky loved her. God bless each of you.
