To you all!!!!!

You Mom was a great neighbor and friend to my Mom- she always had a smile. She would always bring my Mom flowers from her garden. I know first hand how hard it is to lose your Mom and you will miss her every day- but the memories keep us going. Biden said at Bushes funeral some powerful words speaking about his own losses--- He said that eventually a special memory we have will bring a smile to our face before a tear to our eye!!!!! I am sending prayers your way!!!!
