Sheri, so sorry for your loss here on earth! Grateful she is home with her Savior! Blessings!
Love you and Kent!
So sorry Sheri of the loss of your mother. Will be keeping you in my prayers. And we still miss you and Kent a lot. God bless with love I just lost my middle son, Rick, on the 24 of August.
She was a special lady we loved her so much. Sorry for your loss Sheri.
Joyce, you and Bob were so kind to mom. Thank you.
Sorry for your loss. Praying for all of the family. May God surround you with His love and peace. My Mom, Evelyn Mounts, was one of her good friends! I can’t recall for sure, but they might have bowled together on a league team in Perryton. I remember her being a sweet lady. My Dad, Gene Mounts, and Wilbert were buddies also!
