Dear Tommy,
I'm so sorry for your loss but so happy that you had your mother for such a long time.
My mother spoke of her often. I suppose they knew each other from Woodland Park.
Aren't we grateful that we will again meet in heaven where everyone is healthy and happy?!
Peace and prayers be with you and your family during this time.
Sincerely,
Missy Von Schaaf Keith
