I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I know she had been dealing with a variety of health issues, but hadn't realized how bad things had gotten. I just now saw the obituary or I would have stopped at church to pay my respects. I always loved our back yard chats as she would call out if she saw me out in the yard. She will be missed, the neighborhood won't be the same. You have my deepest sympathy.

Our Very Deepest Sympathy to Scott, Patrick and your families on the death of your dear Mother. After your Dad passed away, I would call her and we had many wonderful chats. I will miss her dearly. Our conversations always included how her sons and their families were doing. May her many memories that you all shared sustain you at this time as I will. May God Bless You and Your families in the days ahead.. Keeping You All In Our Thoughts and Prayers.
