Too many happy memories with your mom to remember just one. Always loved when she would laugh so hard she would hug her stomach! And there were lots of laughs around kitchen tables and coffee with your family. We will miss her greatly. Our thoughts are with your family and Miss Laurie you gave her the best care. Know mum and I are here for you. Love, Robin & Mum
