So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed caring for your mom when she was at the driftwood building.
She was truly a joy to care for, she always brightened my morning.

So sorry for your loss! I have many fond memories of times spent at your house, at the park, and I can still hear Aunt Ann's laugh. She was a lovely lady. So thankful for our hope in Christ!
