I'm sorry to read about your mom's death. Sounds like she was an outstanding woman whom I'm sure you greatly admired. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Lucy Davis
Delores, Caroline and Kirk, I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. You are in my thoughts during this very difficult period, Diane
I am so sadden to learn of Juanita's passing. During the 1990's, we were on 4 bus trips together. We had some good times during those trips. Juanita was a very special person. I know she will be missed.
