She was always so friendly and nice. She will be reunited with your Dad and with Cindy, and that has to give you some peace, and help you deal with this loss. She was a special lady and will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate to have known her. We are sending you our deepest sympathy and friendship. Sincerely, Susan and Dick Hugins/Fredericktown
