"Dearest Becky, every time I am at D&S cafeteria, I think of all the times I ran into you and your Mom. Many times I was with my Mom. I remember her contagious laugh. It always made me feel happy! You have her laugh. I am so very sorry for your loss.  But you do know she is in a much better place, laughing with the angels now. God is good and will get you and your family through this painful time. God bless you, Jerry and Warren. We love all of you. Donna and Vic Mills"
