Vickie and Greg, my mom, Pat Mitchell (Pauline Campbell's daughter),each send our sympathy at your mother's passing. She took such good care of Granny, and we so appreciated and loved her for that. Mom had tried to contact your mom from time to time, but all numbers were disconnected. Mom's health is not good enough for us to attend services, although she wanted to go. May you sense God's grace and peace in the days before you.
