So sorry to hear that your Mom has passed away. We have such great memories or years gone by, all those Christmas Eves together. Mom and Dad always thought the world of Jim and Louise. Your Mother was a wonderful woman and I know she'll be missed by all of you. You never get over losing your parents, but your memories always keep them alive in your heart. God Bless.
