I shared many great times with a great friend. Stood up for her and Rogers wedding. She was always there when you needed a friend, honest even if it would be taken a chance on our friendship because it was the right thing to do.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Winnie was such a sweet lady and such a dear friend to mom. Unfortunately we will be out of town for the visitation and wanted to reach out and offer our sympathy.
