Momma Katy, you treated me like your own daughter and always did so from the very beginning. It means a lot to me and makes me feel like your own daughter. I could not have asked for a better mom-in-law. I have always from the first time I met you, loved you. I know how much you loved your family and extended family and wrote many letters; and, at the end of all my letters you wrote your wonderful "words of love". I'll treasure my letters that I have received from you since I relocated to Oklahoma. I'll treasure my relationship with you for over 22 years...and I'll be ever grateful that when my own Mother passed in 2000, you really took me under your wing. THANK YOU, Momma Katy! And, thank you, too, for your wonderful son, Gilbert! MAY YOU both REST IN GOD. Until we can all be together again, all my love, your daughter in law, Gail Lee Spaulding-Merino.
