Carla, Mike, Lynette, Debbie and Michelle and family. Your Mother was my Mother away from home. She welcomed me into their home for the holidays and treated me like family. She was the most caring, and lovely lady that I have been blessed to have in my life. She was an angel on this earth and I am sure she is now our guardian angel. My prayers are with everyone that she has touched over the years!

My favorite memory that was told to me by my mom Corky Knox was at the age of 2 I was going to try and run away and go to my Aunt Reta's... She was a wonderful Aunt and person... I will always love you and miss you.

Love --- Kim Knox Fletcher
