    Dear Toni and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Ann and I wrote for a long time and the last time I heard from you, she had broken something but never heard any more on what was happening to her. Although this was not a shock, it was unexpected. Your mom was a strong person and just like the “EverReady Bunny”…. she kept going and going in spite of her circumstances. I know she was in pain.

    I am Anthony Parrell’s (your dad) half sister and live in Ohio. I have been in and out hospitals all of Sept and part of Oct so had no idea this happened.

    Again, I am so sorry, my husband and I send our condolences.

    God bless you and your family during this sad time. I know you loved your mother very much and did so much for her. She always told me that.

    Blessings and love,
    Evelyn & Phil Morrison
