I am sending you sincere sympathy on the death of your mother. I want to apologize to you. I think I confused you with Janice Newlin Jennings when I first saw your mom's notice. I wrote a message on Facebook thinking I was corresponding with her and therefore it would have made little sense to you.
Again, I apologize for the confusion and I hope I have it straight now. So many of our parents are gone now.
I wish peace and good memories for you and yours.

Hey Cary. Sorry for your loss. Your grandma and mine share the same first name! I know when I lost mine it was very tough. She may have not meant a lot to the world but she meant the world to me.
God bless you in this trying time. KC
