Because of work, I was not able to attend your mom's memorial service. I'm so glad I was able to view it online, and it was absolutely beautiful. We go back a long way, with our dads being best friends. You all are very dear to my heart. Please know that I'm praying for God's strength and comfort.

I remember moving to Springdale Street and meeting Ms. Chapman, Kim, Tia and Cheryl. I was a little older than Tia & Cheryl and we became good friends. Alder asked my mom (Lois Ray Thompson) if I could stay over their apartment sometimes and play until she returned home. So I sort of babysat unofficially. I was over there quite a bit and it became a second home. Alder became a second mom. She even invited me to go on a family vacation to Virginia Beach in a camper. I remember we stopped at a Chinese restaurant. I was given fried rice, but there was chunks of white rice which I hated at the time and she made me eat it all...LOL! I loved that time with them. God bless the family. May He give you peace. Look to the Lord for your help. Love you, Kim
