    I am so sorry to hear about your Mom! It’s hard to let them go, you think they should be around forever, but that’s not the plan. I have so many great memories of when I tended all of you kids back in the 60’s! (For 25 cents an hour!!) Your Mom was like another mother to me. I can see her, Marty, and my mom having a great reunion right now!! Know that I love you all and send my love and sympathy at this sad time in your lives. I won’t be able to make it to the funeral, but I’ll be there in spirit! (((HUGS)))

    I loved and admired my old neighborhood friend. She had a BIG HEART and will be greatly missed. What a wonderful Christmas she will have ~ being reunited with her family and many friends. And one day you will all be with her again thanks to our Savior, Jesus Christ. Sending you my sympathy. I know how hard it is to let those we love leave us for a time.
