Debbie and Lori,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was an amazing woman, Kind, sweet and a gentle soul. I loved her smile and soft laughter as we played Bunco together and all of her teasing that went along with it. I am sure she is starting her own Bunco group up in Heaven with those that played the game with her in the past. When she is not playing Bunco, she will be spending time with your dad, Ryan and several others. I am sure that your dad welcomed her with open arms. Together again!
Once again, so sorry for your loss but know she will always be with you in spirit. She will be missed greatly!
