Carol and family -- I was saddened to learn of the passing of your sweet Mother. I can remember laughing and talking with her when you would pick Ben up from our house or at a ballgame. I always admired the way she embraced her family and made that a definite priority. I was honored to be in attendance at her service today and it brought joy to my heart to hear the spoken words from the minister. I absolutely love your family. I know you will be a comfort to one another in the days to come. Loving prayers to you all.
