Lorraine, I am so sorry for your loss. I have very fond memories of your Mom when we use to ride to work together. I will never forget the "milk shakes".

I was so sorry to hear about Mary. I've known her for a very long time. We would exercise together sometime. She was always fun and very outspoken. I'm just glad she's not suffering. Heaven has received another angel. I will be praying for her family that she loved dearly.
