I am so sorry to hear about your mom! She was a remarkable woman! I remember the days in Fairhaven living right next door! How she managed all you kids, lol. She was kind hearted and I know she will be missed dearly. Carmel and Lisa were like 2 peas in a pod and I know Mom Bushey adopted Carmel too. " Crazy " . Trying to lighten the moment...All my love is being sent to all of you! Know that you are in my prayers! Take care! Love Vicki (White) Kenyon Statesville, NC
