Sherry, Mike, Steve, Rae Ann, Jan,My thoughts and prayers are with you. I love your Mom dearly. She and my mother Marilyn, being both born in Preston, were always so close they seemed like sisters. And I've always considered you not only friends and neighbors, but also family. I learned many of the things I love, such as gardening and music, not only from my grandparents and Mom, but from June and Johnny. They were great examples for me. 12th Street will never be the same now, and our lives are forever changed. But as I learned after losing my Mom, with faith, prayer, and hard work, life goes on. I continue to do the things that they taught me to love, and that is how they would want it. Thanks to you guys for all the good memories. Mike Taylor

Rae Ann:Sorry to read that your mom passed away. There are few things as tough as losing your mother, even when she has lived a long and wonderful life. Best wishes to you and your family.
