I am so sorry to hear of your moms passing.
I have many fond memories of your parents and growing up on the same street. Your mom was always so friendly and sweet. I know you will cherish all the memories. Both our families were very fortunate to have had our mothers live a long life and see their families grow.
Our condolences to you Bev , Val & families.
