Condolence & Memory Journal

Kurt, and family we grew up our high school year's right in front of each other. I can remember her going to work every day, she was a wonderful lady and I respected her so much she was always working and caring for her family. I know I saw her the last time she came down to the house with your brothers and sister I went over and talked to them after your Dad passed. We shared good memories she said I still have that necklace you made me, ya I couldn't believe it, but she did I told her back then it was a hobby and only certain people got one and that was true, god bless her . We stayed in touch via Facebook till she wasn't able to be on anymore, but I always thought about her and when your brothers came to the house I asked how she was, she was one of the special people in my life and thousands of others after all the kids she had and restaurants. The military every where people knew her that's a great legacy to be a part of, and the last time I saw her she gave me a big hug and I love you and she was sorry about Moma. She will never be gone we carry them in our hearts for our lifetime. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all she will dearly be missed. May you Rest In Peace and I know you glad to be at home with your husband, and children before you, but here we know one day we will meet again. God bless all the family she loved you all. Praying for broken hearts, and everyone she touched. Your Sumter family is here whatever you need we love you all
