Kim & Lisa: I just saw where your sweet mother passed away....I am so sorry. I remember her always smiling (well, except when you (Kim) & I were being fussed at!) and being so positive. Please know that you both, as well as your dad and husbands and children are in my thoughts and prayers. I know the holidays were hard, but hang in there. She would want you to stay strong. Love to you both, & God bless you.

My condolences to the entire family. Linda and I were childhood friends (I remember when her Dad was so sick). Even though we had not seen each other in a long time, she was one childhood friend I never forgot. My thoughts will be with you in the days ahead.
