Norma and I are so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. We only learned about it at church this morning. If we had known earlier, we would have attended the funeral. I know this is a great loss. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Dixie: the Long, Patton, and Groves families have common roots and values that go back a very long time, and our parents were great friends.

Please know that you have our most sincere condolences on your loss.
