I was so sad to read of her passing. I didn't know she had a stroke till I asked what had happened. Frankie, I know you did everything anyone could have done for your mother. I spent many happy times in ya'lls home when we were kids. I loved your Mom so much! Jeff thought so highly of her too when she worked at MeasureUp when he was there. My heart breaks for you. Mother was down 20 years bedfast with her stroke, but her mind, speech, and memory stayed perfect till the end. She was in her 80's when she passed and that has been quite a while now. Your Mom was a beautiful woman. We will miss her. Know for sure you all are in our prayers.
