Sandy and Marie my heart goes out to you and all your family on the loss of your matriarch. She was a caring and loving person. It has been a long time since I have had contact with her but she will always leave a lasting memory in my heart. May your sorrow and tearful grief pass with time to where all the memories bring a smile to your faces. God bless.
