I will always remember my first mother-in-law, as a gracious and loving mom. She always treated me with open arms and love. May God rest her soul. My sincere condolences to the family. I still remember you all, Kathy, Mary, and Tim. I just saw this by chance, from the former Maria Garrett. Now Maria Dixon.
