    Dear Charlene,Marie,Bernice

    My condolences to you and your families on the passing of your mom.
    I’ve often thought of her. Cousin Tammy and I had the pleasure of
    visiting with her a few years back and often talked about paying another visit again after the pandemic is over. She was a very sweet
    and kind lady and she will always hold a special place in my heart.
    God Bless
    Cousin Kathy
