Dear David & Vicky, I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. When I remember your mom I picture this little ball of energy. She was always so kind to me and made me feel so welcome in your home. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend the services because I am traveling to Georgia this week. Sincere Sympathy, Susie Martin Meller
