Bill, my deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your mother. While I never met her I see and can read she was a beautiful lady who provided lots of love and many contributions to family and friends. May she rest in peace.
Casey and Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Grandparents play an important role in who we become which speaks so much for the amazing woman she must have been because you are an amazing young lady in many ways. I pray for peace and healing for you and your family.
