Joyce, I am sorry for your loss. Seeing the photo of your mom brought back some good (ancient?) memories as neighbors on "#64."

SO sorry to hear of her passing .I remember many times being at her house and going to church together with my family and hers.

Hugs and prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss..

Please accept our deepest condolences. Lottie's sister, Lucille, would love to attend the services, but her doctor insists she avoids high altitudes and therefore cannot take the plane trip out to Ohio. She will, however, stay in touch with the family, especially during this time of sorrow. The Youngs
