My sympathy goes out to the Batton Family. Mrs. Batton was the image of the woman in Proverbs 31. She was a loving mother to her children. Her smile was a ray of sunshine that would melt a cold heart. I remember as a child going to her nursery with my family and buying flowers. As time would go on and God's plan played out I reconnected with her in my life in a special way. I will miss her.
