Sharon and Jerry, so sorry to hear of Mom's passing. I got to know her when she worked at Allen and I was a nursing student. She was the kindest lady to all of the students. Whenever I saw her at church she had a smile and always asked how my family was doing. May she rest in peace. What a great life to live in her home so long, of course I know she had great help and care from Sharon. She loved her family!
