Wade, my condolences to you at the passing of your sweet Mom. After you sold your place and moved, I only saw her a few times. I have to giggle and smile when I think of her pulling up at your house in her big ole SUV, and then that petite little lady getting out. šŸ™‚ What a sweetheart she was. I know she is hugging your boys for you right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We're so sorry for this grief. Prayers to you for comfort, calm for the days ahead, peace for strength to endure. Judy was a wonderful lady. She was always so nice to both of us. I will miss our chats and the Dollar General store and reaching items for her that she was too short to reach. :)
