Condolences to the Family

So sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing.  She was such a dear soul!  As much as my Dad teased her, she never got mad, but gave it right back to him!!  It is so hard to lose a parent as we have never known life without them.  I know you were a devoted daughter and so faithful in visiting.  She was blessed to have you.  Treasure your memories and she will always live within your heart.  Many prayers and love go out to you Sharon.
