Brian and Janetta, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. She was a special lady. The first tea I ever attended was in her home. She always made me and Aaron feel welcome. Sandra Webster Peffer

Brian and Janetta, So sorry for the loss of your Mom. I have many memories of her and her friendship with my Mom. She made dresses for me when I was growing up, and even when I was a Junior in High School, she reworked the sleeves of my homecoming dress because I liked the dress but not the sleeves. However, she did claim that she would never do that again, as it turned into a much more involved task! She gave me a bridal shower luncheon when I married, and if course, it was complimented by her famous home made rolls and desserts. She even made tablecloths for my wedding reception, because I just didnít want standard white! Her cooking and sewing skills were amazing, and she was always so generous with sharing them. On. Lighter note, I also remember visiting your house in Christopher (before you were born, Janetís), and was amazed that she let the boys rescue baby possums and keep them until old enough to release! Your mother lived her life doing for others and was a wonderful woman who will be missed by many. My condolences to both of you and your families.
