Not sure what to say?

I'll always remember your beautiful hands. They brought my so much comfort my whole life. The last time you spoke to me you grabbed my face with both hands and patted my cheeks (like you did since I was a tiny girl) and told me you loved me, will stay with me always. Thank you so much for that grams.

I had the distinct honor and privilege to speak at and play a guitar solo at the memorial service for Cora Lucas this past weekend. Cora was the 97 yr. old mother of Denny's best friend Aleda Lucas...Cora was an extremely devote Christian lady that loved her church-family and friends and loved to "play the spoons and loved to dance" She definitely knew how to make a joyful noise unto the Lord...She will be missed by all that knew her and loved her....... May Perpetual Light shine...

You will shine in my heart forever! ❤

Prayers to you. Gina and your family.

Michelle Neal and family
