Marcie I really see the resemblence, you favor Mrs. Mattie Mae. I know you and your Mom will miss her terribly, but I believe she will now be able to watch over you and the rest of the family, like she used to. She has a new address now, one where she will be herself again, and she and Wilbur and Tigger can be together. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers at this really difficult time.
