My heartfelt condolences to you all. Crissy, you've been on my mind constantly over the last few days...Remembering all the great times in our younger days when I practically lived at your house. Your Mom always made me feel so welcomed. She was like a second Mom to me. I feel so blessed to have seen her one last time a couple of months ago. She will forever be in my heart.
