    I am so sorry for your loss. Mardell was always a bright spot in my day when she came in for a haircut as she always had a story and we always had a good laugh. Jill, you did a very good job with taking care of your parents. You put your whole life on hold to keep your parents in their own home where they wanted to be. May you find peace in knowing you did all that you could do and go on and find find your way. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. LaVonne Williams

    CandleJill, Brenda & John,
    I am so sorry to hear of mom's passing. She was a wonderful lady and I have such fond memories of her from when she worked for my folks. Some of the stories she used to tell and how she watched out for us kids when we were little. She was like another mom to us kids. She will be missed greatly. Jill you did a really great job taking care of both your mom and dad when they needed you most. Wanted to let you know that you are a special person and never forget that!
