Tina and family, I wish I could be there to help in celebrating your beautiful Momma's life. I'm out of state this week. Please know you're in my thoughts and prayers. I remember when I would come over to your house in our younger days, your mom's kindness and pretty smile. I'm sure she's looking down with that beautiful smile now.
