“We could not have had anymore loving parents than our mother and father. Our daddy treated our mom like a queen and not a day went by that he didn’t pick her a bouquet of flowers. Now she is in Heaven with Daddy and without any pain. Thanks to our Lord and Savior.”

    God bless you, Aunt Marjie! I know you are having a joyous reunion with Uncle Ken. You will be greatly missed by your dear family. May God give them strength to endure the sorrow they feel in losing such a wonderful Mom, Grandmama, Great Grandmama, and Aunt. Sending my love to you all. Cousin, Barbara
