John I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with your mom in the Budget Lingerie department at Horne's in the early 80's. She was such a lovely lady inside and out. She also attended our wedding over 33 years ago. My husband also worked at Horne's in the men's suit division. She always had a smile on her face and was always happy. She was like a second mom to all of us youngsters. We used to share our Barkus Bakery chocolate chip cookies with her. Sending love and prayers. Debbie Glunt Morgan
