Karen and Joe I am so sorry to hear of your mother's death. I have nothing but wonderfully sweet memories of her. She was truly a great person. I know you will miss her. I am praying that God will comfort you with her sweet memory. I know she would want you to be comforted knowing she is at rest with your dad. Love and prayers,
