Olivia & Mr Davis,

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful woman I have very fond memories of her from elementary age especially her helping out in the book fair and the Christmas shop we would all go to so we could get Christmas presents for our parents. She will always be with you. We will keep your family in our prayers.
