Mary our deepest condolences to you and everyone in your family. As you know my mom and your mom were the best of friends while growing up in Bishop, which then continued with you and me. Your mom was my 2nd mom I enjoyed every sleep over every dinner and every heart to heart talk we ever had. I'm glad she's rejoicing with our Lord and watching over you and giving thanks you were always there for her. Love you guys with all my heart.
