    I was shocked to hear of the passing of my childhood neighbor from across the street in Hanford Village, Mom Vesta Moss. She was truly a wonderful woman. I spent a lot of time in her house as she explained life lessons and showed great wisdom to me and Melva. (Ann). I am sending up prayers for Donnie, Melva (Ann), Sandra (San),John (Dicky), and family that God will grant you peace in knowing that she is no longer in the pains of this world, but is with Her Lord and Savior.
