Yvonne & Donna I was so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. She was like a second mom to me for years. I grew up with her from the time I was in kindergarten till I started high school. She made the best home made fries. I have a lot of memories of those days. Just know I am thinking of you and my prayers are with you. All my love Darlene Greeley
