Shawn, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother, she will be remembered and missed, and I will always cherish her stories of growing up with the rest of my Aunts and Uncles. Never doubt her love, she loved you beyond measure, and was so proud of you. She is with her Mother and her beloved Father now, and sharing stories and tales with her brothers and sisters.... and dancing, she so loved to dance. You are in my thoughts and prayers Shawn , always.
