I didn't know your mom well at all, but from everything you have told me about her, she was clearly a wonderful, wonderful lady. I know you have many great memories of her that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Let this be a celebration of a life well lived.
One thing about her that I do know for sure: she raised one hell of a great son.
Love you brother,
Bob D.
