Kerry, sending love and prayers at this time. I miss her now and even more now. Remembering the good times we had together. After Ray and I married Aunt Wilma and Uncle Ike came to our home and had dinner with us. She always talked to me about that and the picture of Chris and you as babies.

Kerry, your Mother was one of the sweetest people I ever knew. I worked with her many years ago and she was always so kind to the newbies. I visited with Wilma while she was in the hospital and I am so glad I did. She was still the sweet beautiful woman I knew many years ago. You and your family are in my prayers. Leanne Smith
