Bill, Jeff and Diane, I was very sorry to read about your mother in the Herald. Time doesn't stand still after all, and the interactions between us all come flooding back even though years have passed by. I'll be thinking about you all.

Bill, Jeff and family...It sorrows me to hear of "moms" passing. She (and Bill) have always made me feel as if I were one of the family. Although her leaving 'us' is painful, her pain and suffering has now ended. May you find comfort in knowing...she is now in a better place. May GOD comfort and keep us so we may someday be with her again! My thoughts and prayers are with you ALL... ...always...
