    Teresa I am praying for you and your family. There is nothing like losing your mother. But you can rest now know she lived a good long life and is in peace with no more pain. Know I am here if you need to talk. I will always remember her myself for she passed on my birthday. Remember what I said we will do next yr if I am not laid up and you want to. Hope you are feeling better yourself. Take care of yourself.

    Teresa, I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Myrtle. I sure enjoyed meeting her at the family reunions when I came down to Flat Rock.
