Dear Vicki, Stephan, and Sharon,
I am so very sorry and my sincerest condolences for the loss of your Mother... Your Mom was one terrific lady!!! I have many wonderful memories of dropping over on holidays or whenever and genuinely feeling a part of the family. The house always smelled good. Holidays or not🇮🇹 Soooo many times I'd call for Vicki and just talk and LAUGH with your Mom forever before she'd hand the phone over to Vicki.... And many times over years in my late teens, thru my 20's and early 30's I'd call her just like I'd call my own Mom. I could talk to her about almost ANYTHING 💗. Somewhere in my mid 20's on the phone with her one day I slipped up and called her by her first name. It was an awkward moment of quiet and I kinda stammered and said "I've known you so long that "Mrs. Farrington" sounds just too formal!" She warmly said "Call me Mom, Geraldine. Just call me Mom."
I loved her so so much (and your Dad too). May she and your Dad rest in reunited peace💞💖💖💞.
