Emma Jean, I remember being at your home as a teenager and your Mom was welcoming and sweet. How blessed you are to have had her in your life all these years. I think fondly of our years of friendship and am sorry I cannot attend her service today due to Grammie responsibilities. Looking forward to seeing you soon! Barbara Moore
