I'm so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I just wanted to let you know she was such a lovely lady. And I will always remember the hours that your Mother spent talking to my Mom , Kitty Griffith on the phone. Mom enjoyed talking and reminiscing of their time together living at the YWCA and being good friends for many years.
Dot was so helpful when Mom was starting to get really confused with her dementia . Mom would call Dot at all hours not knowing where she was and Dot was always there for her. Dot was a caring and a giving person. Your Mother was very proud of her wonderful daughters and sons and about the grand babies also.
Today is Mother's Day and I'm sorry that your Mother is not here for you. Know that she is now with your Father in Heaven. Cherish and hold dear the memories that you have and know that one day we will see our love ones again.
I'm still blessed to have my mom, Kitty Griffith with me today to celebrate Mother's Day, even thou Dementia has stripped her of all knowledge of knowing me as her daughter.

God be with your family at this time of great loss,

Ann Griffith-Illig
