Gary and family,
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, it is a great loss when we
lose our Mother's. I remember your Mom from the Health Dept. and her giving me probably my first shots, (funny the things we remember). I didn't like it when I knew we where going there, but your Mom was kind and reassuring . I know you will miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
