    Sorry to learn about your mother’s passing. She is so beautiful in her photo. I didn’t realize her age until I read her obit. She was such a sweet aunt to have. Ruth Ann spoke often about the time she spent living with your family when you kids were little. Your folks introduced us to our 1st grilled hamburger. We ALWAYS had fun when your family came to visit us at the farm. I also have many fond memories of the times we had together in Avoca.
    Keep in mind, your parents are now happy and smiling down on us as they are once again together.
    I am so lucky to have had them and you 2 kids in my life. We may be physically far apart, but I think of you often and smile as I remember the wonderful times we had together.

    So sorry for the loss of your mother, she was a wonderful woman who will surely be missed. So Happy for Wilburn who has missed his wife for years and now can enjoy peace with her for eternity. God bless them both. The Sutton’s were a very kind and giving couple.
