David, I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I had seen Marty Hicks several months ago, and he told me what a fine job you were doing taking care of her. I know that you can be pleased and proud of that. We have you in our thoughts and prayers.

Me and my 3 girls would visit Ms. Partin at the rest home a lot. She LOVED the girls and my girls LOVED her. I told them today about her passing, and they cried so hard. So sorry about this, but we know that she is in Heaven. My girls would sing to her and "her baby". Abigail 14 years old, Julia 10 years old, and Olivia 8 years old. God bless this family. We have so many pictures of Ms. Partin and the girls together. We mourn with you..... Jason Henderson and the girls. 3257 Walters Road Creedmoor, NC 27522
