    So sorry to hear about your Mother. I visited her a few times when I went to see Mom. She was a Sweetie. I’m sure the Lord will welcome her with OPEN ARMS. Love and Hugs to you and family.

    Don and Nancy, (it seems strange to call you by that name!), I am sending my sympathy in the loss of your mom. She certainly lived a long life. It doesn’t matter how long you have had your mom, I still think it is very hard.
    With thoughts, sympathy, love and hugs,
    Betty K and Fred Junk
