    I know what your feeling, but rest assured that your mom is in the most heavenly place today. She is enjoying that time she has looked forward to all her life. Yes you will miss her as I have missed mine for 39 yrs. But I will see her again one day and you will too. My prayers are with you and all your family.

    God Bless.

    It seems that you are never really prepared when this time comes as it must for all. Please call on God’s support and help which He has promised at sad times such as these. Lanny, If I can be of help to you in anyway Please call or E-mail me. Your mother was a great person and I remember her in our early childhood days.
    With respect,

    Mickey, Lanny, Dennis and families, I was sorry to hear of Aunt Pet’s passing. I have fond memories of her and Uncle Halbert. I remember the fun time we all had water skiing in Sarasota Bay, and when we would come to Tennessee to visit. Know that she’s in God’s hands now, reunited with Uncle Halbert. May God bless and keep you all strong.
