Janice, Connie and Julie, your mom was a force of nature, and so it has hard to believe she is gone from this world. There will never be another one like her. I am sorry we can't make it to Benton for her service, Camilla especially wanted to be there in the worst way- she kind of adopted your mom as her "grandma" after Ellie died- but she has a summer job orientation that can't be missed. We will be there in spirit and Suz and Bud will represent the Woolley family. We loved her like family and share in your loss. Prayers to you all and to the rest of your families, in your loss❤️
