Dear Linda, Tommy, and Michael, I'm sincerely sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. She was one of the nicest ladies I have known and she always welcomed me with open arms in your home. I know she will be relieved to see Mr. Pucc in heaven and they will both we watching over all 3 of your. I hope that somehow you find some comfort every time you think of your Mother. Love you always, Laura Lozano Edwards 106 Oakmont Forest Drive Cedar Park, Tx 78613 512-658-2584
