Tom and family, I am thinking of you all and your mother is in my prayers. I was saddened to hear of her unexpected passing. Although she was in her 90's her passing is always a sad change for you and all who knew her.
She had a great 90+ years of LIFE and raised a great son and family who I'm sure will rejoice in heaven with God, the saints and all of her family and friends.
May God hold you and yours in the palm of his hands now and forever,
Paul f
