Cyn, thank you so much for the call to let me know. I loved your mom ... funny, beautiful, brutally honest (good thing) & stubborn as all get-out. You didn't fall far from the tree (also a good thing)! And that pic of her on your patio ... HER spot! I wish I could mourn in person with you, but know that I'll be there in spirit. Love you all!

My heart is with you Cindy & Pat.
I have so many fun memories spending time at your house in Junior High & High School with your sweet Momma always interested in what we were up to.
And so glad I got to continue to visit your Mom in all the years since. You were blessed to have such a wonderful Mom all these years.
Wish I was there to give you a big hug
