These folks are such a compassionate group who were always there for Mom and me anytime of the day or night. What they do is amazing as they care for all who come their way. Also, an enormous thank you to Bristol Hospice for their daily compassion for Mom and their daily calls and talks . A special thanks to Joanne for all the support she gave me. You all are special and will always be appreciated more than words can express. Mom loved music and singing. She was a lifelong member of several churches over the years where she taught Sunday School with Dad and sang in the choir. No service will be held per her request but a celebration of her life will be held at a later date. She will be interred with her husband, Howard, at the beautiful Veterans Cemetary in Dallas, Tx. Mom will be missed by her family and always loved unconditionally. You were one of a kind for sure! When you went home to be with The Lord your mind became clear, your voice became strong and your body free of pain, straight and strong. We love you Mom (Memaw to the grandchildren)! May you rest in complete peace and joy!
