Saddened by the passing of an amazing wife, mother and grandmother...to Ruth, Bill, Connie, Robin and their dad, Jack, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I remember meeting Mrs. Sexton when Ruth and I were in junior high. Her beautiful smile and sweet nature were present then and still there anytime I saw her and Madison walking in our neighborhood over the past few years. She was a remarkable woman. I am so sorry for your loss.
