Your Mother was my wonderful neighbor with a great sense of humor. She cherished many memories of the family adventures, and loved the cruise experience. She was very proud of the entire family, and especially proud of Dillon serving in the military. Many times she expressed how lucky she was to have the family she was blessed with. She was an guru and she was amazing when I crossed the street to ask her questions of my own. I will miss her greatly and am sorry for your loss.
