    Our hearts are saddened by your loss. Your momma was a wonderful person! She was a sweet friend to my parents, and I (Debbie) got to know her pretty well when we traveled to Lubbock to try to “get skinny” over a few months many years ago. 🙂 She loved all her family with a passion. She will be missed. Debbie & Mike
