    Desi, Keith And Steve Your mom was like the koolaid mom- sweet to everyone. The time she gave to other children by taking them to camp, etc was such a selfless act I always looked forward to seeing her on Monday nights at Wesley UM Church When I started college she had a way with maintaining a sense of happiness in the department. Every time I visited her office, even if it had been a while since I saw her, she gave me a hug I pray that the fond memories you have will bring you comfort at this time. Sincerely Karen Greene
