Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She was a really nice lady. You may not remember but my mom was Hazel Crowe and we lived across the road from you on US 64 when we were kids. Janis Crowe Patton

So sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed the days we had together at Ranger Baptist Church. She loved you boys and was so proud of the both of you. She will surely be missed by all your family.
