    I am so sorry for your loss. A mother is such a special person and I know yours meant the world to you. Jean was such a great friend to my mama. I often would see her when I went to see my mama. I can picture them now heading off to church or sitting at the kitchen table on Sunday afternoons. May your memories of good times comfort you.

    We send our sincere condolences to you. Although your mom lived across the street, we mainly saw her at Sheldon’s in the day. She was always efficient and nice to us. We hope you will enjoy fond memories.
