    Moms provide their children with so much while they are growing up including a place to call home. Now your mom as been called to her home. I hope you are comforted by the promise to be with your mom in her new home when the time comes for you to join her in the sweet by and by. She was a special person in so many people’s heart. Love you sister and my families prayers are with you

    Mrs. Gammon, we did not know well, but we have known and loved, having many fond memories, her daughter, Linda Gatlin and family, since Chris was small. Linda went many extra miles in caring for her mom; therefore, I’m confident Mrs. Gammon set the example when rearing Linda. She is deserving of the titles, “Big E”, “Grama”, “Mom”
