Charlotte, Janice and Bubba,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of you mom. We lost mama in January. I remember when we were young, I think we spent more time at "Shadow's" than we did at home. Its been so long but I am Carl and Irene's daughter.
You and the entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
