Sandy and family, We will so miss visiting with your Mom, she was such a blessing each time we visited with her. Her face always had a big smile when we walked in the room.
G.C. wanted me to let you know there was a mistake in her obituary, it said she was 97 and she always told us she was 39. Just saying she would not be happy that you gave away her secret. ha! ha!
You are all in our thoughts and prayers and we know we will get to spend eternity with her.
G.C. and Foxie
