I just wanted to say that my love and prayers go out to the entire familyduring this time of loss. I know I'll see them in a few days but they are all very special to me. Aunt Jackie always treated me like I belonged there wether it was in Mass., Georgia, Ill, or here in St Louis. I thank her and Bob for all they did for Dad it made him the 'Man' I came to love and respect and it's obvious that thier influence was a big part of that. I remember Jackie talking so many times of her family down in Morley Mo. and I just regret never getting to meet them. They were dearly loved by both Jackie and Bob and by extention the rest of us through the stories we heard. I hope you all down there all accept our prayers from St. Louis as well.

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I know it is a sad time for you and your family. they always say that people are in a better place when they pass on. But that doesn't ease the pain for those who are left to grieve. I know what it is like to lose a parent. You will always feel a little sad when they are mentioned or at family get togethers but they will never leave your heart. and the love you have for them will never subside. So be strong my friend and know that you are in my thoughts.
May god bless you and your family.
