    We are so sorry in your loss. I remember your mom when she worked with us for a while in EMS. May your memories be a comfort to you and may God hold you in the hollow of His hand during these days. God bless you all.

  2. I'm very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was such a big part of my life at church and was so gracious to host United Methodist Women's meetings in your home on Myrtlewood. There has been an ad on TV lately with a living room that looks just like yours did, and when I see it I think of your mom. I will always have fond memories of both of your parents because I was in the choir with your dad for years. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I regret your loss. Your Mom provides many wonderful memories of our years at Friendswood and the great church there. Always willing and smiling, she blessed so many of us. God Bless! John Barfield
