Cindy, Susan, & Kim:
I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. I loved your mom. I'll always remember working with her at the Ponca Tribe , we use to share rides together. She made me laugh every time I saw her and always gave me a hug. I am so sorry I was not able to attend her services. I just heard she passed away yesterday afternoon. I loved her and I will certainly miss her. My prayers are with you.
