Larry, Tom and Robert and families, I am so sorry for your loss. Where do I start with all the great memories. Piedmont Lake, Church Camps, Church Choir, Christmas Eve, My mom’s best friend and unlimited more. She had a laugh I will never forget. You are all so lucky to have had a mom that was as unique as her and always full of fun and I was lucky to have known her. She is now with ML and I know she is happy again. My thoughts are with you all.
