When I received Danny’s email the other day I was shocked and saddened. I know Mabel is at home now with the Lord and her beloved husband.

Danny Ray, you take solace that your Mom is well now and looking beautiful and in no pain or discomfort.

Take care my Brother..and call me when you can .

Aunt Mabel is one of my most favorite aunts. She always made me feel special. She was beautiful in every way. I have treasured memories of her from my childhood. She will always have a special place in my heart. She will never be forgotten.
