I am sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a beautiful soul and I was honored to have met her. Through Brian's stories, pictures and videos I got to see the wonderful sense of humor and love she had for her family. Now she is whole again and will forever watch over each of you. Y'all will be in my prayers.
