Joyce and family,
So sorry to hear your mom passed. She was such a sweet lady. I always remember her coming to accounting with her Avon books and orders. I know how close you all were to her. She will surely be missed.

We are so sorry for the loss of Betty. She was such a kind, gentle Christian woman. I enjoyed our chats during family gatherings and at church. She really loved her family and it is comforting to know that she is in heaven with her loving husband and son. We will continue to pray for your entire family as you grieve. God bless you all!
