Best I know you're in a better place. You were a wonderful friend and mother. Most of all you were a cou- rageous soul. You had a way that was worth more than money could ever hope to possess. 1 know there were many times you could have given up hope. But, clear one, you fought a good fight with life. I believe you won a place in heaven and a crown of the prettiest colors that were ever to be won. You had a way (a lot like me) to make others laugh while really deep inside you were hurting. Most of all Ill remember you as a friend, rll al- ways be proud to say that I knew, as I sit and write this, I am having a hard time fighting back the tears. Someday, if the Lord sees fit, rll be able to hold your hands and give you a friendly embrace. If I could have one wish today, it . would be for us to have a talk like the good old days when you were still here. Since that's impossible I'll just keep you in a special place in my heart and memory. --Gall E. Foster SAVE BIG ON THESE EURE-K-A-SWEEPERS APPALACHIAN TIRE PRODUCTS Rt. 219 N.
