Jacy, Diana and Toni I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I know the pain you are in as my mother passed last August. My father passed away two years ago. My father had lung cancer and my mother had Alzheimers. Both of my parents were so small when they passed it was very hard to watch them wither away. I still have and will have grief for a long time for my parents as we were very close and I called them everyday. Be strong for each other. Know that your Mom is in heaven with the Lord looking down on you. Watching over you all. She is one of God's angels now. That is a good position to have. God Bless and love you all.l Katrina (Randy) and family , Bridgette (Fred) and family. You all are in our prayers.

So sorry for our loss. When we lived in Chicago my parents, Bernis and Ora Lee Reed would bring us to Gary to visit and we would have the best time. So much love was shown to us. Aunt Lurlee and Uncle Henry and their children were always glad to see us. Those were the good ole days! Be strong my family. Love you always
