I am very sorry for your loss. Trudy was a wonderful person and I know how you feel. I was hoping to see her soon in Canada when they open the boarder. We always went to the same mass and sat near her in church. I hoped 2021 would be better than 2020. My husband ( Bill) died 12/26/20.

Betsy and family, the deepest of condolences to you on the loss of your Mom. She had some tough years but I am sure she is happy with your Dad and the rest of their "gang" up there in Heaven. I came across this picture of our Moms at a Holy Angels graduation. Who knows, maybe they are really holy angels now!
