Sorry for your loss
I was so surprised to read of your mom's passing and sorry to read of your loss. I enjoyed her daily visits when we lived in Colfax. She helped us out a lot watching Eric and Joel after they got home from school until either Jim or I got there. You certainly are in our thoughts and prayers as you adjust to her home going.
