Deb, Denise & Diane So sorry to hear about your mother. Glad I got to visit her at the hospital in April. Have fond memories of the old days when I'd go to your place and we'd usually chat with your parents before we went out. Those were the good times. Take care. Thinking of all of you.

Sending my deepest sympathy to all of the family. I am so very sorry for the loss of your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will always remember her as being a very styling lady with wearing all kinds of cool hats and outfits. May she now rest in peace and be reconnected with your dad.
