My thoughts and prayers are with you 3...Randy, Steven, and Karen as well as the rest of the family. Your Mom was a "gem" to know, and I've got many fun memories of when we were neighbors in Oak Ridge North! We used to run in to her and Fred at UT games and always had a great visit! I know, without a doubt, you have many, many wonderful memories to cherish of times with her. Rest in Peace, Janie.
