Wanted to reach out and let you know you are in our prayers and thoughts during this time. Your Mom was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was a one of my Mom's (Mary Lou Ulch) best friends growing up and they remained friends until my Moms death. I remember her coming to Florida to visit and she had such a way of making you feel so comfortable with her gentle voice. I loved talking and laughing with her on my Mom's back porch about all of their childhood memories. She was an amazing woman.
