Dear Jenenne and Reuben and family: I have such wonderful memories of your mother. As a child, she was my neighbor, whom I often stopped by for a refreshing glass of water on my way home from school. I remember the times when she quilted with my grandmother and worked on many church and community projects. A lovely lady with a warm welcome and kind nature. May your memories of your mother and grandmother bring you comfort during this time of loss.
