To Pat and all of the children, (Jack,Jimmy, Clark, Beth, Bobby, and Tommy). I am so sorry for your loss. She was a sweet woman, but I don’t know how many times, I got whooped, or chased up over the hill by her for doing or saying something I shouldn’t have. My prayers are with you all. Elaine aka : “ Momma Jugs”. May you Rest In Peace.
