    To the Family, Any loss of a Love One is powerfully painful but to know that the the ones we love so much must at some point go back to Our Father Who created them. I am so very grateful to have known Mrs. Vaden and to have been a recipient of her love and kindness. Before I could express my gratitude to her for the opportunity given to me with this Corporation, She said “Thank you” to me First. Know that my thoughts are with you all and my prayer for your family is that the Peace of God will be with you always. Love Lemont,

    I would like to express how my heart hurts for your family at this time. I met your mother while working at 9393, she was very pleasant to chat with. It was sad and cheerful to hear that Mrs V had found her perfect set of wings so she could finally be where she had been for so long, at your dads side.
    Thoughts and prayers for your family, Jamie
