While I have not been back to the Carolinas in many years, I have very fond memories of Mot. She was always so warm, welcoming, and kind. Jennifer, my cousin, you were just a little girl when I left for college. I wish I had the chance to get to know you as you grew up, but the distance from South Carolina to Minnesota made visits difficult to achieve. You have my sincere condolences, especially after learning that you had so many recent losses. You and Uncle Roy are in my heart and my prayers. for God's merciful comfort in your grief. Sending much love in your direction.
