    Ronnie and Janice, I was so sorry to hear of your Mother's death. I did not know that she was in failing health. I have such great memories of her from our high school years. I passed by Cove City on 70 twice in the last few days and you and your family immediately came to mind. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
