Everett and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to all of your family in the loss of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
I will miss your mother. She and I had become good friends over the last thirty years. I first met her when we were both selling real estate in the late 90's. I appreciated her steady demeanor and warm friendly smile. She was always ready to answer questions or help in any way. I didn't stay in real estate long, so for a period I didn't see her much. Then she married Lowell and we became neighbors! We didn't gather in each others houses, but we could have the best "driveway" conversations! She always seemed glad to see me, especially when they had just returned from wintering in Arizona. And I was always happy to see arrive back in Abilene. She had a generous soul. Many times she came to our door with a couple of the biggest, most perfect peaches I had ever seen, fresh from Colorado. She brought amaryllis bulbs from their Arizona home. And she also shared Lilly of the Valley bulbs that she had dug up to spread out. Both of these are still growing and healthy, a testament to our friendship and the love I enjoyed from my good neighbor. I will miss your mother!
