Cathy, Brent and Families
I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I have very fond memories of her when we were teens, and all her attempts to keep us in line as typical teenagers. I think I was at your house spending the night more than I was at home, and she was always very welcoming and kind to me. Just know my thoughts and prayers are with your and yours at this time of sorrow.
