Brenda, and family...so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was an amazing, kind, loving understanding woman. I think of her often and her gift of consoling others when they were struggling. Heaven has welcomed home an angel. Hugs and prayers to all of you, especially your precious Dad. Love you, Nora and family.
