I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Your house was like my second home growing up. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family. Heaven gained a another angel the day she passed. Jean spread them wings of yours and fly high. If any one deserved it. It was you.
You will be missed.

To the Preston Family
I just want to send my sincere condolence on the passing of your mother. She was a tenant of mine for many years and a great lady. We had many conversations of family life and children. Feel blessed that you had her for as many years as you did. Be assured that she will still watch over you.
