    Your mother left you with so many precious memories that you will replay in your mind for the rest of your life. Her laughter was my first thought of her. May God give the entire family comfort at this time.

    We are so sorry for your loss. You had a very sweet mother.
    We were so glad that she was there for Earl.
    They did a lot of things together.

    Love,
    Patsy and Butch Luzader

    Rick + – so sorry – I’m so terrible about reading things on line. I’d have been over to the calling for sure had I realized your mother had passed away. She had to be one of the all-time sweetest ladies I’ve ever met. God rest her soul and blessings upon all of you!
