Gene & Carole & Kathy: I know that you will miss your mom, Gene, but also know that she is resting peacefully and has had a long, full life. Your are a great son and daughter-in-law. I know that Kathy (Kat to us) is very glad she could be there to see her and help you through this. Sadly, I think we will be borrowing her soon, too.
