We know your hearts may be full now but the memories are many. In time you will remember the smiles, the words and even some of the times you were not what you should have been. Take the time to remember and hold those memories close. Your mom was a special person to so many. Heaven is rejoicing and she is smiling. May God comfort you all and walk closely with you during the coming days. Rosemary Raybon Conner Nancy Raybon Jackson
