    Shawn and family, So sorry to hear about your mother. I never had the honor of meeting her though. Dont know if you remember me or not...I was Mike Fleenor's wife. We used to have the church bus at Woodville Baptist Church and I remember when we used to pick you up for Sunday School and church. I have a drawing you made when you were little as you sat in church. You had given it to Mike. He kept it in his Bible for years. He passed away in 2000. May God comfort your hearts during this difficult time. I will remember you in prayer. Debbie
