So sorry to hear about your mother’s passing Johnny and Patricia and the rest of your families. Your Mom and Dad lived a long and good life and it was always a pleasure to see their smiling faces at church or wherever. I will always remember our mother’s visiting in the hallway at First Christian downtown between Sunday School and Church while I drake a Grapette from the Soda Box Machine. And also will never forget the float trip they went on with us I think on the Buffalo River and how they kept us laughing all the time on that float trip but how sore they were the next day after it. Memories are good at times like this to relieve some of the grief you are experiencing at this sad time. Praying for you and your families at this time! God Bless Louise!
Prayers for peace and comfort for all the family.
Johnny so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. What a great picture of her. Sure brings back many fond memories we had.
