    Dear Jimmy & Cheryl, I am so saddened by the passing of your mom. It is so very hard to lose them any time. She will be remembered and missed by yall. I know she has probably met my own mom by now and they are sharing special memories. May God's peace and strength be with you and your family at this sorrowful time
