I thought the world of your mom. She was such a sweet, kind woman of God. I appreciated all The Good News Clubs she taught and her iced, sugar cookies need to be added to the list of awesome goodies like her carmels and pies. I’m sure she will be missed, but I’m so thankful to know she is with our Lord! Love and prayers. Carolyn (Ames) Rector
