Dear “Buchanan Family”, So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother, I considered her and you guys as part of my family from my early days in the Church. I will be heading up to Kentucky tomorrow to visit my sister so will not be able to be at the funeral. Please know that my love and prayers are with all the family–there is a special place in my heart for you all.
I’m just finding out the loss of my second mother. My heart aches more than words can say. Momma “B” was one of the most generous and loving people I have ever met. Neil, Steve, Karen and Chris my deepest condolences and all my love to you and the rest of the family.
