Prayers and sympathy to Renee, Rhonda, and their families. Your mom was one of a kind, so very sweet and loving. We all shared many good times together while living in Riesel for several years. Our many weekends spent playing volleyball together whenever we could. Our children joining with us in the fun. Then the time away from there, but not diminishing the wonderful memories we built together. She is "home" with your dad and sister in God's loving arms.
We love you all,
Dee Winter, Wendy Morrow, and Wade Morrow and family
