I'm sorry Mrs. Cole that we didn't have the time to say a farewell. May God embrace your family with his Grace.

Her daughter, Mary also has three step children. Joshua Sughroue, Nadia Sughroue Pugh, and Madison Sughroue. I will miss you Mom. I just hope you are now with Dad and you two are at peace together. Love you always.

My mom will be missed . I find myself trying to call her and talk then remember I can't . I still have adddo many questions to ask of her , but it's too late . I was trying to take a video of her while asking questions when we were at the hospital , but apparently my phone didn't record but a few seconds . I wis h I could of got a good recording like I did with my grandma Pearl Derrick . Oh well , it's too late . I have a lot of fond memories with my family , but I also have some not so fond too . I wish I would of been able to spend more time with mom & dad in their golden years . I love you both & will see you later on the other side .
