Jan, Debbie & Tony, Your family in our prayers. Your Mom was precious. We have fond memories of her, especially when I was desperate to move from the country to her back door. She always had a smiling face and was witty when we would see her at Walmart. Blessings & Prayers to All, Vicki & Terry Sullens
