I'm so sorry for the loss 0f your mom! She was such a wonderful lady! We lost our mom in October, it's so difficult. You are in my thought and prayers. Love you all.

Lora was our neighbor in Fulton. I was a young newlywed, and Rae and Paul were teenagers. Lora always had a wonderful laugh. When my children were born she was kind, supportive and always generous. The Haines were part of our “Fulton Family”. Aaron Howard was such a wonderful addition. My children grew up with Lora’s grandchildren. My daughter Kate would “babysit” occasionally. My son Aaron and Josh were close enough that Josh was a groomsman in Aaron’s wedding. Kara and my youngest son Christopher were musical pals. They performed together for a Jazz night in high school, Kara with vocals, and Chris on trumpet. They were the lobby entertainment, and managed to quiet a very large and noisy crowd with their rendition of “Summertime”. I can still hear their sweet music. Although we have all travelled far from Fulton, our affection for the Haines/Howard family endures and we send our sincere condolences for your loss.
