Gena We were so sorry to hear about your mother, needless to say our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. You should take comfort in the fact that you were a loving daughter who reflected her mom's love for life in all you do. The thought that she witnessed her great granddaughters first steps, had to bring her joy. May the memories of life and love comfort you in these moments and beyond. Jeff& Kath
