Mom, you are missed by so many. My mother, my friend, my confidant and voice of wisdom. I loved our evening card games and making you your cocktail. I will always remember all the traveling we did as a family. Too many to list! I know you are with family and friends who went before you and you are "raising" hell in heaven! I love you mom. Rest in peace.
