Please accept my sincere condolences. Your Mother was a wonderful person. I have so many fond memories at your home during my teenage years when you and your parents extended your hospotality to me. Your Father and your Mother were both loving, caring people, who always had time to talk with me when I felt the need. No doubt your biggest heritance from both parents is the fact that you are all the caring, loving people that you are today. We do not always know why God decides to take any of us at the time that He does, but, He will prepare us for the days ahead when we feel like crying, when we remember something funny and have a good laugh, when we look into the mirror and see our parents in front of us. Always know that God loves you and thank him each day for giving you the parents that He gave to you. God Bless each of you. Please, feel free to send me an email. I would love to hear from you. Much love and blessings upon you. Janice Hanson Whitmire
