So sorry for your loss, your mother was a wonderful lady. I remember the bingo days and how she made the best chille and we depended on making sure we had 2 bowls even if it meant mixing hers with Kathys. Again so sorry but I know where she is.

So sorry to hear about Aunt Kathleen. She was such a nice person. She always had a smile on her face. I know this is a difficult, and you will miss her dearly, but know she is with our Heavenly Father now. Prayers for the family. Rick Martin family
