Ron, My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. She was a wonderful, kind, sweet woman and I loved her very much. Mom and I visited her about a month or so ago when we were out to see Uncle Ken. Hopefully, she is in a better place but that does not stop the sadness or pain. Thoughts and prayers for you and the family. Saundra

Ron, my condolences to you. Your mother and father lived next to me in Pleasant Gap for years. They always would be running with Ray and Betty Hile. Best neighbors I ever had. The fond memories of them will live in my heart for ever.
