My heart aches for all of you. I know how it feels to lose your Mom. At least you know she is at peace now. She lived a long, full life. So sorry I could not be there. I will be there in spirit. Please pass along to the entire family our love and condolances. When I get a little stronger I plan on coming home for a visit. Jimmy & Marie and Jeff, Pam & Jeffery
