“I'm sorry that I won't be able to be at the service. I'm down in Fl. I didn't know she was still dealing with the cancer in May when I got to see all of U at mom's funeral. What a strong woman fighting a terrible disease. So many great memories from our childhood getting to spend time at her parents on Boy Scout Rd & our house in Clio. We got to spend time at Grandma & grandpa Wordons & in Crystal. I will always cherish all my memories dear cousin . May U Rest In Peace now & out of pain . Yes your children are the happiest of your times raising them & seeing the joy . We get older & keep saying how we need to get together , well I waited to long .”
