We are very saddened at your passing and you will be sorely missed by all of your friends and relatives. I am especially proud and thankful for the great way that you raised and took care of our boys and grandson while I was gone so much of the time with my trucking job. There will always be a special place in my heart and memories of all the great times that we shared together. Your x-husband and friend. Lonnie
