Mom and Dad made a home in Smithfield, and had 3 children who they loved dearly. Mom's entire world was my Dad, Ron, who she took care of for 36 years. They had many health battles, but got through every one together until the bitter end. Their love and affection for each other was endless. You wouldn't see one without the other. Mom loved us 3 kids, and would do anything for us. She taught us all so much, she truly was a strong and amazing woman with all the struggles life brought to her. She taught us kids to be strong and to be yourself. In 2010 her daughter Bonny brought into this world a blonde, blue eyed grandson who Mom absolutely loved and adored. Her little "J Man" as she would call him. She is preceded in death by her husband Ronald and father Thomas Hale.
