  1. Dear Cyndi & Susan I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I have so many fond memories of all your family. I spent so many hours with you both as well as Greg when your mom & dad would have plans to go out. I loved your mom & dad & always enjoyed seeing them anytime i would run into them.
    I know your mom will be greatly missed. I will be lifting you & your families up in my prayers. Love you both.

  2. Lloyd Dean and Donna were younger but still considered classmates at Dumas High School as-well-as church mates and friends. Cling tightly to our Lord’s unfailing and unchanging hands remembering you are not orphans. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. May He bless each and every one of you greatly.
