When I heard about your mothers death I remind the time when my
mother was with me. Dont lose hope because our mothers protect us from
far. Sorry for your extreme loss! The loss of a mother is such a great loss
that cannot be filled by others. Your mother was a smart lady who always
inspired everyone. Caring thoughts are with you at this time. XO

Please give Burdette Norris our sympathy on the passing of Jean Norris.
She was my cousin. My mom Mary Sampson was Jean's dad's cousin.
Thank you very much.
