    You have my sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. As a teenager I babysat the boys, so I became quite familiar with your family besides being a member of the Church across the road. I hope you find comfort from the many people from the Rock Falls area and beyond as they offer their memories and great times with your mom. Georgia, God's speed on your final journey.
