    My heart is so very sad and broken at the loss of your sweet Mother. I loved her so very much and was blessed to have her as my mother-in-law. Her grandchildren were blessed to call her grandma Carol they loved her so much. We were planning to come for the services but unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances we are unable to make the trip. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
    God Bless and Keep You
    Guy and Jennette
