Dear family, I was saddened to hear of the passing of your mother, Macel. I grew up knowing her & her family, attending the same church & later working together. It was wonderful to reconnect with her on Facebook a few years back. I also babysat you children from time to time. My heart goes out to you for your loss. You will be in my prayers in the days to come.
