Renee - I’m so sorry to learn that your mother passed away. It’s been several years but I look back and have fond memories of her as we were growing up. Lifting you all up in prayer. Angela

Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. Your mother was a very special person who loved everyone she met. Kim, I am so sorry we weren't able to get together; I lost the phone number you gave me and I didn't know how to contact you. Love, Bonnie
