Todd, Ross and family, Love, thought, and prayers for all of you. I will always have a special place in my heart for your mom. We loved having her in choir and were so appreciative of her help with Children’s Choir. Our family has so many wonderful memories of her. She and your Dad were special Youth Group leaders. Additionally, your mom could tell her humorous experiences in life in such a way! She kept us all weak from laughter. May God wrap his loving arms around all of you during this time. You were the light of your mom’s life. May she test in peace. What a wonderful friend! Love, Carol.
