    My mom and other family members have been laid to rest their and I thank you so, so much for taking the time to freshen up the Memorial park. I’ll be traveling from Arizona this weekend for Mother’s Day to spend time with her and visit my Aunt and Uncle there in Barstow. God bless you all and may the Lord’s face shine upon you and all that cross your paths.
