Was so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. As you know, she and your dad were very special people in our lives. Mother and Daddy thought the world of them and my son, Christian was very privileged and honored to have them as his Godparents. Even though we had lost touch with her lately, she (& your dad) will always remain in our hearts.
