My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. 

One of my fondest memories as a teenager was when you (Sandy) and I would invite our moms to drive along with us to shop.  I remember our moms talking and laughing together.  Of course, with our inexperienced driving skills, maybe humor was their way of coping with two teenage girls.

Once again, I’m truly sorry for the loss of your mother.
