I remember when Raymond and Rena were dating, then married. Wow! Be a little bit back in time. They would bring Corey over a lot when he was a little fella. But he loved him some crackers. Rena would always talk to my mama about Pats love of Elvis; cause my mama loved him too. Sending prayers that may ease your feeling lose and pain.

I met Mrs. Rena when I visited my sister in law, Marian Edwards, at Smithfield Manor. It was always just a joy to get a smile and chuckle out of her. She was always so kind and sweet to me. I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for comfort.
