Rickie, I am so sorry to hear this. She was like my second mom and I loved her dearly. I have stayed a lot of nights in her home and she always treated me like her daughter but of course you know this. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her. Take care of yourself Rickie. God Bless!!! your friend Hazel
