    So sad learning of your Mom’s passing, She was a very nice neighbor to have growing up. She also sat at the same birthday table as my grandmother for 5 yrs. May she and Bud have a day of dancing together as they are reunited.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I took care of your dad and mom for years at the clinic and know many of you as my friends. After looking at all the pictures I can tell she was a well-loved mom! Blessings and prayers to you all!
