So Sorry to hear about mom. She was a friend and we talked on the phone many many times. She would do anything for anybody. I can't believe she is gone. She was a very generous person and was loved by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Know that she is in a better place and is back with family and the many friends she had. I am glad she is at peace and not suffering anymore. God be with you all.
