Rick, I was saddened to learn of the death of your precious Mother. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I will be unable to attend the service on Sunday as I am in quarantine for Covid. Ms. Vera was a very special lady whom I loved very much.

Although my husband Jack and I moved from Laurens many years ago, I still visit and keep in touch there. My condolences at the passing of your mother. Jack had such fond memories of you and he would want me to reach out. He passed away eleven years ago. He and I were fortunate to have loving Christian mothers, and I am sure you have sweet memories of yours. May God bless your family with peace and comfort. Nena Babb
