    I know the family finds comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain. I will keep you all in my prayers because I know how hard it is when we loose a love one.

    Jennifer, I know you don't remember me, but I was your mother's roommate while we were in school at Baptist. I loved her but we lost contact. She wrote me once about 10 years ago saying she was retiring and taking some time to travel. Unfortunately, she did not give me a way to contact her. I have thought about her often. I so hate we never got to talk again. I do know she loved you dearly. I can only imagine your pain.She was a great person! I'm truly sorry for your loss.

    Mom, I miss you so much, it has not gotten easier and some days are harder. I wish for you peacefulness and more happiness than you have ever had. I take comfort in talking to you and I hope you are looking down upon us often. Bailey is okay and he has formed a loving bond with Bogey. They remind me of Lance and Levi. I love you mom!!!

    Nancy I love you so much and miss you beyond belief. They say time heals all but it will take a long time for this pain to go away. If you can please place a big fish on my hook at the fishing tournament this year I would appreciate it. Love you forever, your sister Linda.
