I am so sorry for your loss. I have such wonderful memories of your mom. She was always so kind and warm to us when we were young. I always considered her my second Mom and I always knew she would be there if needed. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Thanks George. This means more than you know. While she was your second mom after your mom died so young, you were, indeed, like her third son. We shared a lot of great times back then and mom's memory was never an issue. She remembered you and the many nights spent at the house in our teens. It's good to hear from you and I hope that all is well...!
