I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you all during this time. Reading about your mom brought back many years of memories. Love to you all. Praying for comfort for all of you as you get through this time!

I lived down the street from her growning up and even bought a house on our street and live here today. Grew up with Aubrey and I always remember stopping at her house on Halloween and she always had a smile on her face when she opened the door to pass out the candy. She was a sweet woman and has a wonderful family. Thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.

Dearest Barb, I am so sorry I got my days mixed up and missed the visitation for your mom. She & I had many wonderful chats when we sat together at the family celebrations, and at Bickford Cottage..She was so sweet and lovely...a beautiful gentle soul. How proud she was of her children and grandchildren; She was ready to meet our Lord, and be at peace. She enjoyed a wonderful life. May all of you cherish
the precious memories....she will always be with you. Extend my sympathy to Doug, Emily, and your siblings and their families... I Love you Barb..May Christ's Love bring you peace during thisdifficult time. Hope to see you soon. Love, Eulalia
