Chad, So sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. She was always so proud of you. I met Mot when she came to work at the Health Dept. We spent a lot of time talking about our boys. I will keep you and your family in my prayers as you begin a new chapter in your life without your loved one. Denise Weathers

What a wonderful lady your mother was. She was a pleasure to know and work with for many years. She was always so cheerful and talkative when I saw her out and about.I know you will miss her greatly; but may it bring you peace knowing that she is now your guardian angel. I know your Daddy was waiting on his sweetheart at the gate. May the Lord wrap his arms around each of you and give you the strength for the coming days ahead.Much Sympathy, Rene Tucker Neel
