My condolences to you Donna and Mahlon. What a blessing to have such a wonderful mother. I didn’t know her personally but reading her obituary, she was a lovely lady.

Mama B was just like area.ama to me. We were back door neighbors for 40 years and after her husband went to be with the Lord, she rode to church with us on Sunday. We were also fence buddies. She would call and say “Archie meet me at the fence.” She would have something to eat, some cute little thing she made, or a birthday present. Debra and I truly loved her.
