    Dear Don, Rudy and Marion and Christina,
    I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a wonderful and thoughtful lady. I know how you are feeling at this time as i lost my mother a few years ago. As time goes on you will remember something she said or did and just laugh to yourself and say “yes that’s mom” I say it quite a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
