    We were so sorry to hear of your sweet mother’s passing. I have nothing but fond memories of her and always will. She was one of my first teachers (Beehive) when I was a young woman at church. I also still use one of her recipes that she shared with me and others at a Relief Birthday Dinner Celebration years and years ago. She will be remembered by so many as a wonderful, loving person. Hope you will find comfort and peace in the coming days and years ahead. Love to all of your family!

    Mike and Cathy Clayton
