Roger DePriest, I'm sorry about your Mother's passing. I am praying for you to receive peace and understanding during this sad time. The Lord will sustain you. If you don't rememeber my name, I am Thelma Tate's daughter. It was good to see you a few weeks ago in Big Stone. Please know that many people care for you and your family.
