    I am so sorry I can’t be there to give you all hugs. I have so many memories of all of you as your mom and dad were my favorites and then Louis and I married and spent many many Sunday’s with all of you. I so remember Joy and Roy. Remember we always called them Sis and Son. Now she is up there with Louis and all the others and enjoying Gods blessings. Love you all.
