Ginny, Sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was our neighbor for several years. She was very tolerant of little boys using her yard to hide out. God has a special, lovely place for her. Take care and give thanks for having this great lady for your "mom". Kindest regards, Doris Mason

So sorry to hear about Ms. Hively. We were her neighbors for 14 years. My granddaughters loved to play in the back yard, and Ms. Hively allowed this to happen. She was a very nice and gentle person. Thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss. My mom and your mom was good friends. I still remember your mom at my mom's repostering furniture. She was a sweetheart and will be missed by all.
You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
