So sorry to hear of your loss, I can always remember all the times we spent down at the Nazerene church in Farmland, when Jack and the men sang in there little quartet and then Mom and Norma working together at the school. She was a very special lady to a lot of family and friends and will be missed by many. God bless your family, we have been there and its not easy but you will have plenty of help to get you through this Bill & Dorothy Sunday.
