    I am sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember her fondly, especially, how patient she was with us as teenage girls.

    My mother had a special connection to your mother thru Dee & Olene Davis. They were neighbors who lived on Sells Rd. near the farmhouse where my parents lived when I was born. I always admired your mother’s sewing abilities. She could create anything. Do you have that talent?
    I have thought of you thru the years. I remember coming to your birthday party once at your house. Primary school at Kirklin and riding Homer Smith’s bus bring back many memories. No one ever loves you quite as much as your mother. Treasure the good memories. Suellen
