You all had a wonderful mom. I am thankful to have had her be my mothers friend which felt like actual family. Growing up I always loved her cookies and etc. I am so sorry for your loss. She and Dorie can be together now, hoping my parents will be with them looking over us all. This picture that is posted here shows how beautiful she was inside and out. Bless you all.
