Dear Jill
I just got news of the the loss of your mother. My sincere sympathy and prayers go out to you and your family. I have so many fond memories of growing up in Caswell County, and the life long friendships our parents shared. I hope you find comfort in knowing that Thad and Joel will be waiting with open arms for her to arrive. I know how exhausting these times are, my mom passed away last night, at Lower Cape Fear Hospice, after living with me the last two years. Take good care of yourself
With Love,
