I was sadden to hear about your mother. She was such a sweet and good person. I have lots of memories going into Interstate 5&10 purchasing many things but mostly flower pots and stands. Your mother and I would spend time talking about flowers. Those that did well and those we had difficult times keeping alive. She had good stories about the things she did and funny stories about the things that with all her efforts they died anyway. May the God who knows our every need and feelings of happiness and sorrow, keep you and your family in His care.

Ms. Dean and family, I am so sorry to hear of your dear mother passing. It breaks my heart to know that she is no longer with us. God saw fit to take her and make her a true angel. My memories of her go back to when I was about 7-8 years old and every child went to the 5&10 to fill up their shoe boxes of supplies for school for the year. She would always go right to it and over half the stuff together before my mama could find one item. Then later in life God saw fit to put this precious woman back in my life at the nursing home. Oh how I grew to love her even more and could depend on her not to let me forget to post the "menus". Oh and let's don't leave Jackie out when I would "catch" them with their snacks. He loved her so much as well. She would have to show me her pictures of her grandchildren and oh those previous great grands. Ms. Dean she always no matter the time or day she talked about you. I would tell you know she will be her after work and sit with you through dinner. She would say yea, yea. I pray that God will give each and everyone of you the strength and comfort you each need to get through this difficult time. You remain in my thoughts and prayers each day. , Paige
