Trudy, Steve, Tim and families; There are no words to say how sorry I am of your Moms passing. Your Mom was an amazing woman, a ray of sunshine in all the lives she touched. I watched the side show and could hear her talking in each picture. That was absolutley beautiful. I'm praying for each of you for the strength to get through this. Your Mom will always be with you.
