Sorry to hear about Cora. Never really met her, but losing a mother and your
best friend in one day is pretty bad. May God be with you and Jamie.

Cora always had a hug and smile for me! I loved that. She made me laugh
practically every time I saw her. First time I met her I was only 12 yrs old & it
was at the river. So sorry for the loss of your Mom. You all were her world.
She was dynamite in a small package! Praise God for her & prayers of
comfort to you ALL.

It saddened my heart she will not see her grandchildren grow up. But I know
they have a guardian angel watching over them. She loved all my
grandchildren, claimed them as hers. She will be dearly missed.
My thoughts and prayers to the family. I know you all lived her so much.
