I am so sorry for your lost. Even though we lost touch with one another over the years I have never forgotten your Mom. She was always nice to me and my sisters. She was always a kind lady. I have thought of you many times and wanted to contact you but had no idea where to start. We lost our Mom (Eula Mae Fabacher) 13 years ago. My prayers are with you. Love you cousin.
