I was vary sad to learn of your mothers passing. Nothing prepares us for this moment regardless of circumstances. We now rely on memories to carry us forward until its our turn to join all who preceded us in this eternal journey.
Take care my dear friend. Cheryl and I will be thinking of you and your family.

While I did not know Zenobia, she must have been a remarkable Lady to raise a son like Dwight. She must have been so proud of you and the person you are. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and you family Dwight.
