Vonda and Jim, My sincerest sympathies to you and the rest of your family. It sure sounds like your mom was quite a lady and lived a very long and wonderful life, nurturing all sorts of folks along the way. (Couldn't help but notice that she was the same age as my grandfather when he died. Still a pretty good number in this day and age.) Sorry I can't be there tomorrow, but will certainly keep you all in my prayers. John

Brenda Bailey-Thomas

Dear Vonda and Jim, I just now became aware of your Mother's passing. I'm so very sorry. I pray the beautiful memories that you and your Mother shared will be a comfort to you with each passing day. Shortly after we moved from L.H., I lost my Mother. I was 20 and she was 44. It was hard to accept, but I know it was God's plan. He had a reason. And some day when I join her in heaven, it will all make sense. I'll be praying for you. God bless you. My deepest sympathy, Brenda
