✝️🌸Oh so many memories fill our lifetime with “Mom”. The times together are treasured. Always thoughtful was she, such a beautiful heart. Smiling and caring about us everyday. Laughing and reminiscing is what I enjoyed the most, we were miles apart for part of my life , but our wonderful relationship stood strong for all these years. We pray for your beautiful soul, we send our deepest sympathy to Richard and Mike, two of the finest sons I know.
May you know peace and comfort in the coming days. Know we are close in your heart, and you in ours......
