Words cant express my sympathy. I will miss hearing stories about her flowers and driving by admiring them. She is in God's arms and safe. God bless you and your family. He will provide during this time of need. With humble and sincere love,

Barb, there are no words to express my sorrow for your loss. You have shared many stories about how your mother loved to plant flowers in her yard each year.

I know you will miss her but you can be proud of the legacy she leaves. You are in my prayers during this difficult time.

We are never apart- you left your love seared in my heart long ago. Your smile always lingers in my soul- you smile brightens my day. You laugh echo's through the hallways of my mind, leaving a smile on my heart. Each tear shed, is both of sadness and rejoice- the sad is because I miss you, rejoice because I will always be part of you. Until we meet again, I will celebrate your time here, until we meet again, I will embrace those forever lasting hugs I got from you, I love you dearly.

Love always,
Broughton Family
