Faye and Dexter, I know it has been a while since your mother passed. I am sure you still grieve for her as much today as you did when she passed. She was, indeed, a very special lady and I remember her always being a ‘mom’ to us all in elementary school. I still cherish those memories of all my Roxobel-Kelford family!
Many years have gone by since I lived in Kelford but one of the names that always come to mind is Julia Cahoon. I remember her as a very sweet lady and i know you will miss her.
I was sorry to hear about your loss. When I think about your mom the “cookies and cheese biscuits” come to mind. We had pleasant talks when I visited with her. She will be missed.
Dexter and Faye, so sorry to hear about your loss. Just wanted to let you know Richard and I are thinking of you and have you in our thoughts and prayers.

So glad you had these three years to have her with you at your home. You were as wonderful a daughter as she was a mother! love, Kathy
Faye, Dexter and families,
You are in our thoughts and prayers. Your Mother was a wonderful gift from God to you, just as you were to her. How wonderful you were there to care for her and help her enjoy her recent years. May you be comforted just as you comforted her.
Much love and God’s peace to you,
Larry and Donna
