How grateful we are!

    • Praying that your family find peace. You’re all in my thoughts! Dance with Mark now Pennie!
      Love you!

    • Mama, I love you with all my heart. I am deeply saddened that you had to leave us. But I understand that you needed to be with Daddy. You have been my best friend my entire adult life. I am so blessed to have had you for a mom. We had some rough moments taking care of each other and sometimes fought like sisters but the bond was never broken between us. I love how you wouldn’t hesitate to put me in my place when I deserved it, even if I didn’t want to admit it. You have given so much love and support to my children. You have made my life better for being a part of it. I will miss you. I love you for always!
