Given your love of genealogy, I'm sure her legacy will be well preserved for future generations. If there's anything I can do, don't hesitate to ask. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family at this time. Bettye

  3. Dear Linda & family. I'm so sorry about your Mother. I wasn't able to come to the Funeral, but my Thoughts and Love were there with you all. In Deepest Sympathy, Linda Fay

  4. Linda, My wife and I share is your sorrow. I know that life hasn't been easy lately. Knowing your now like I do I consider you and yours family so we share in your grief. My wife is trained in hospice and I personally had to experience what you are going through so I know pretty much how you feel. May God take you under his wing and comfort you forever and help you get back to life when you are ready. "Mom" is in the place where we all want to be someday but when that time comes it may be a blessing for the person but the family etc. must get through the personal pain. If I gave advice, I would say live each day, love always and never forget the memories. Our sincerest sympathy and condolences. James and Teresa Harris
