    Thinking of you all at this difficult time. You mom was a wonderful lady that I will never forget. She always thought of others. I remember on my 14th birthday, that she made sure that I had a cake and food, as my mom was not available to do so due to the death of my aunt on the same day. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers over the next few days.

    Carol Ann
