Lyn, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. It's not easy to lose a parent no matter the age or sickness. You can never ever be prepared enough. Please know that I am thinking of you and the rest of the family during this difficult time. Time will make it a little easier, but I know with the holidays it will be hard. Just pray and have faith and GOD will see you and your family through these rough stages. Sincerly, Angela Sherron West
