Gene, I want to extend my sympathy to you in the loss of your Mother. I'm glad she was my second Mother, you can't have to many Mothers you know. I always enjoyed coming to your house growing up and especially the desserts Twila would make. Yum Yum! I also want to thank you for taking such good care of our parents your Mom and (OUR) Dad when they needed a caregiver. Thank You and May God Comfort you and keep you in his tender Loving care. Love and Prayers, your sister by the uniting of our parents in marriage. Becky
