Dear Hoyt, Debra, & Larry, Your mom was SO precious to each of us! It's hard to imagine a world without Ms. Chricket, but we know she was ready as soon as the Lord called her home. We'll always treasure the visits on Halloween and celebrating her birthday a day early... the one and only chicken and rice that helped to make algebra and geometry a little more bearable...and the delicious cakes made with love. A part of our childhood seems to disappear with the the passing of those we love endlessly, but may you know the love of "family" will be with you always. May God give you peace as only He can. We love you dearly, Brian, Teresa, Zach, Reese, Drew & Brooke
