Gone Home

As many of you know, my sweet Mother passed away on February 26th after a long illness.  She died peacefully with family surrounding her.  My Dad, brother, her sister, two nephews, her niece, and myself were with her when she died.  She was 76. 

She was a woman of deep faith.  She was a wonderful wife, Mother, and friend. But she was best known to family and friends for her Southern cooking.  Many people have shared their memories of her with us and not surprisingly, most of those memories have involved food and sitting at her table.   

My family has been overwhelmed by the love and concern shown to us in the days before and since. We are so grateful for everything - the flowers, food, and cards.  The visits, hugs, and phone calls to check on us.  And we thank you.  From the bottoms of our hearts.
