Oh my, where do I begin? I’ve got 18 years of memories of your mother . I’ve got to hear many, many stories of when she was just a child. She has told me about her college days and when she met your father, her job and when she was in labor with you for 3 days and their trip around the world and many other trips they took through the years. She loved talking about Payton and Gains, she was so proud of them and she even liked the name they gave her (RED) I could go on and on, but I just wanted to say she was a very smart and intelligent woman and she has been a blessing to me over the years .I’ll never forget her. I’m thankful that I had the privilege of being her employee, but it was more than that, we became friends and God had a plan, he needed her to come home. You had a wonderful mother and she sure was proud of you! God Bless you and your family. I pray for God to help heal you and your families broken hearts.
