Your mom was a treasure and a very dear friend. Our years at Smithton Baptist hold fond memories for my family. I remember her stepping up as our babysitter in our time of need providing loving care to Lyndsey while only spoiling her a “little bit”. When he was so sick I remember your dad tell Brother Ben “I’ll see you down the road, but now it will be paved in gold”. What a blessing to know your parents are now walking together down that very road. Love and prayers to your family.
