Dorothy Small, I am so sorry for your loss. I never knew your mother but from what I have read about her I feel like I lost out by not knowing her. Knowing you, I think you have the same loving, caring traits of your mother. You and Mort are very special people to me, as I’m sure your mother was to so many. God bless you and R.I.P. Theresa.
