She was a second mom since 7th grade. I always felt warm and loved in her presence. Patient, kind and loving, she helped me become the woman I am today....I will miss her....

Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I remember your dad telling me about the merits of Whitewater U. and the down side of no night life. So thankful for her full live and eternal life in Christ.
