Dear Brooke & Family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was such a lovely woman. I used to look forward to seeing her as much as I did Dr. Liles when she worked at Liles Chiro. She was always smiling! You had one of the BEST moms, grandmas, aunts, etc. ever Brooke and family. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with y'all and my prayers are in the wind to you!
