Dear Linda, Sue, Steven and entire family - I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your beloved mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. I’m thinking of all of you at this sad time in your lives. When special people leave us they take a piece of us with them and in return they leave us with memories that will live on forever. We are living in very trying times and I know how hard it is to deal with everything at once. Be strong for each other and day by day you will get through this and times will change hopefully. Your mom was your rock and was so special to all of you, so loved and so much part of your lives. Sending hugs.... Fran
