    Our sister was the sweetest person in the world. She will now keep our family who passed before her company, Betty, Thelma and Daddy and Mom and all the Kidwells before her. She will be deeply missed.

    Love always,

    Your loving Sister Judy and Brother Larry Kidwell. Knoxville TN

    Hey Momma-
    I was sitting here today thinking how sunny and nice the weather is and how perfect it would be to work out in the yard.
    How I miss you already, and sure- it will get easier- but I will still miss you always.
    I trust you are feeling better and not hurting anymore and the mystery illness that has plagued you for so long is now defeated.
    Just remember…. I love you.

    To the reader:
    It has been over a month since my mom passed away, and the pain is still fresh in my mind.
    Soon, Valentines Day will be here and one of my favorite valentines now rests in the mausoleum there in Hendersonville.

    Momma, I miss you very much, and I send you many hugs and kisses for Valentines Day. I hope the roses in the yard are as beautiful as your smile this year.
