    A childhood full of memories to my Dillon & Moore Families. It is always a sadness when God whispers for his children to come home and leaves us void of their presence here on earth. I cry with you all over the loss of “mom” to so many. My thoughts are with you all in so many different ways. Peace be with you all!
