We remember meeting your mom for the first time in Pine Bluff years ago. She and Gary were both there and we enjoyed the visit. I remember the picture of your dad. You looked so much like him. Your mom had such a sweet laugh. Losing your parents is never easy, I know you all have lots of memories of her. You are in our prayers. Mary and Kenneth
