Chris and Craig,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet mother. I will always remember her as a dear and kind woman always rooting us on in whatever sport we were playing. She always had a kind word whenever I came back to town to visit with Mom and we would run into her in CVS or wherever. She will truly be missed.
