Mike, Danny and Sandra I am so sorry to learn this news about your mom. She would occasionally call and check on my mom and I hadn't heard for awhile so I started trying to find her. I'm stunned and so sad. Growing up with your mom and dad and you kids was a highlight of my childhood. Learning how to water ski! Christmas parties. Your mom was so beautiful! My sincere sympathies.

May she Rest In Peace.

ps, Linda, my sister, passed away in Jan. Complications of dementia. Mom has it also, I take care of her.
