Herb, Sandy and Scott,
Was so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a special lady. Every time I saw her after all these years she welcomed me with open arms.
I know how your hearts are broken but know she will always be with you. Believe it when you turn the corner she’ll be there, always when you least except it. So many wonderful memories of her and her beautiful smile. Hugs to all of you.
