Ron, Ric and families, We are so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a good friend to us thru the years. We went to school, square dances and church in Preston Hollow. When our son was injuried and was at Albany Med. Ctr. she was with us all the way(6 months) it was so kind of her, but that's what she did. Please celebrate her life with laughter, memories and lots of love.
