Cindy, I am so sorry to hear about your mother passing. She was such a sweet person and was such a help to me when I worked in the central office years ago. She was always willing to help me in any way. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Cindy, Ms. Idalene will certainly be missed but I know she is rejoicing in heaven with Mr. Bill and Bill. I have so many fond memories of her as a child and then an adult. She is so precious to me. I will continue to lift you all in my prayers. Love, Joanne
