Rheta and Butch. I am so sorry for your loss. I never knew your mom but I love both of you. I have never met you, Butch, in person and Rheta I don’t know when we last saw each other but we conversed a lot back when I was on Facebook. I need to remedy both of those situations by just making some road trips.May provide healing and comfort to you both and the rest of your family.
