    Sandy and Family, I am so very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a wonderful, sweet woman, and anyone who had the pleasure of getting to know her was truly blessed. She treated me as if I was one of her own, and I will never forget her laughter or her kindness. She loved each and every one of her family with all of her heart . I know her and my Mom are sitting in heaven, drinking iced tea and reminiscing about all the trouble (and love) that we gave them. Remember her with love and laughter..that is how she would want to be remembered.Love, Barbara Ann
