Teresa, I am so very sorry about the loss of your Mama. She was a lovely lady and very good influence on us all as teens. I don't get a newspaper nor am I on the internet and I check the obits now and then. I know how you feel. It is quite hard but you will be together again so hang on to that promise from our Lord. I haven't seen you in a while. I run into your hubby at Walmart almost every week now. I love you.Angie McAlister Dillon
