My condolences to Bob, Patty, Greg, and Kathy. May you find comfort in having her in your hearts the rest of your lives. I have many fond memories of your mother. She babysat me, cut my hair, introduced me to soap operas, and gave me the nickname "Punky." She was like a second mother to me in the neighborhood those first 11 years of my life. It was a pleasant surprise to see her last year during calling hours at the funeral home when my mom passed away. I'll always remember her fondly.
