Wes and Family, Heaven got much sweeter when your precious Mom got there! I’ll never forget the morning my Mom passed on March 1, 2000. There came your Mom to our house with a cake. I can still see her in the driveway bringing it, and we stood there and talked. Your Mom was a dear, precious saint. My heart hurts for you and your family, as you grieve. Sending our love, hugs, and prayers! ❤️🌈✝️💙
