    We spent many happy Christmases with her and Phillip and Chris and Ruth Ann at your house. There are a lot of happy memories and good stories, but precious few pictures. I always remember her with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye. She loved her family and her friends even more than she loved Tony Romo and the Cowboys, and that’s almost more love than one person can hold. We will miss her. You all are in our prayers.

      Thank you Fred and Susan!
      Mother considered you part of the family for many years and we appreciate you always being there for her. She did not consider it a complete Christmas if you did not come and bring Scott. She loved you all so much.
      Love you

    Deb and Chris, I have enjoyed your mother she was like my own sister and I have loved her very much. I have been sick for a long time and don’t get out much since I moved back home. but I really enjoyed my work while there. I wanted to come see her, but I don’t drive much any more.

    Write me when you can.

    Chris and Debra,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Losing your mother is like losing a second mama to me. We grew up together and I always felt like I was just another part of the family. We have all been through a lot of life together. She watched my daughter grow up too. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. She will be dearly missed. They don’t make Mama’s like they used to. We love you Chris.

Mother was a very special lady and a lot of people whom she met over the years loved to call her Mama. We will miss her dear sweet smile but she is now at peace and no longer suffering,
      Love you guys
