    My condolences to Cheryl, Carla, & Kevin during this difficult time. I have fond memories of your Mom; she seemed to never be without a smile. It is hard to believe she was a teacher for 41 years. She touched many a student’s life in that time. Keeping you in my thoughts & prayers.

  2. Betty Brown

    So sorry for your loss. Prayers for peace for all.
