Roxanne, Kathy,Steve,Nancyand Lisa.
Very sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was a hoot. I remember walking to Jack and Jill late night for stupid stuff. Always had fun at your house when I was a little girl. Very fond memories of her and all of you. She is your Angel 😇 watching from above and will be by your side. Just remember you always have her memories and love in your heart. God bless!

My condolences to all of you for the loss of your mom.
I have so many warm memories of her, as she was so much fun to be around.
It must warm your heart to know that she is reunited with your dad and her pain has ended.
Carry her memory in your heart and share the love she so readily shared with you and she will smile as she walks with you thru life!
