My deepest sympathy Michelle on the loss of your mother.  Growing up I remember the fun times when your mom would take us shopping in York, how your mom enjoyed long summers in the sunshine and cooking new and interesting dishes!  Your mom always had a smile on her face. My thoughts and prayers for you and your dad during this difficult time. Love and Hugs.

I am Terry’s sister and I knew Brenda from the time they were dating until her tragic death.  She was not only a relative, she was the kindest person I knew and a good friend and advisor.  I will grieve for her for a long time.  May she finally rest in peace.
