I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom, my thoughts and prayers go out to all the family! I will always remember your mom at all the cookouts and holidays I came to with Mae and Donny. She had the greatest laugh and smile! She was the glue of your wonderful family and I remember your Dad and her always happy and all you kids always around them! She always made it good for all of her children and grandchildren and anybody who showed up! I remember one 4th of July and I came with Mae and Donny and you all were shooting fire cracker rockets at each other and your Mom and Dad both were up on the porch just watching you all having fun! I thought that was the greatest thing and I always knew how much you loved your Mom and she loved you all! Love is what your Mom gave to each and everyone of her children and that never stops! Nothing can stop the love of a Mother and her family keep your heart filled with the love she gave you all because love is the greatest gift!
