Mrs Moss was purest of heart and so kind. I was so lucky to be apart of Sunday Dinners with Mossy (Bob) at her home with family. Floyd, Mary Tucker Tanner and Family, it was a blessing to have known her and you. I can never express how much I miss Bob, but am so grateful to have been involved with the family. God Bless You and Mary.
