I am so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Carrol was like a sister to me. We basically grew up together on Kentucky street. Your aunt Barbara and I WERE like sisters. I ran around with her from jr.high up till now. I remember when all three of you were born. I will miss your Mom; but will remember the good times that we had together. My prayers go out to you all and your families during this difficult time. May God bless and help you heal. Blessing to you all.
