You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I just found out about your loss. She was not only a relative but a friend. I have such fond memories of her and your Dad as band boosters during our time at Carroll High. I am sorry I did not know so I could attend the visitation and funeral.

Eddy, Debby, Lisa and Angie, my prayers and hugs are with you as you mourn the loss of your sweet mother. I so enjoyed spending time with her when I would go pay my rent on my storage. I would talk to her for an hour and it was talking about her family. She would tell me she was just so happy with all of you. She knew I graduated with and was friends with Debby and would tell me all the latest on Debby but she was always ready to share her joy about all her children. She said Eddy when lived in Ozark was always checking on her. She loved her family. I will miss her so much.Prayers and Hugs for the family.
