I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful woman through Bubba and Autumn a few years back.In that short time to me she became my second mom and thought the world of her. Heaven has truly gained an angel. She will be missed dearly. The day we all went on our bikes with your mom on the back of mine will be a day I never forget. My heart felt and deepest condolences go out to all of you. Love you all.

Sam and Brandee Brewer
