Ella Grace, Bubba, Walter and Shannon, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. We will miss her as I always tried to see her when I would bring Daddy over, even though some times we could not catch her at home because she was always gone somewhere doing something. Sorry I cannot be there, but my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. She is no longer in pain and she is with our Lord.
