Sally and family,
I was sorry to hear of the passing of Tia Petra. She will be missed by everyone who had contact with her. James loved her very much and I know she missed him once he was gone. If I could I would be there for you. I don't know if Pat or Rachel told you, but my mother passed away on Dec. 28, 2020 at the age of 90. I know you will miss your mother as much as I miss mine. Prayers to you and your family.
Take Care and let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
Love always Debbie & Joseph
