Today Joy and I put flowers in the church in honor of Mom. Her birthday was August 12. Our dear friend, Billy Rich, did the flowers, as he does every year. We never tell him what to do or what flowers to use…he just knows. He was such a special friend to my Mom, and he honors her by using his talents to fix an arrangement that just shouts, “MRS. ELLA!” He gets it perfect every year! Thanks, my friend!
Mom, sure hope you liked your flowers today. I bet they are nothing compared to those growing in Heaven, huh? I also hope you heard all the kind things folks said about you, too. You are remembered with such love and admiration…a true testimony to the life you lived. We love you, Tonja, Joy, and Pop.
