    Jennifer & Family – I just heard that your mother passed, I’m so sorry for your loss. Even though we haven’t been in touch for years, your family has been the subject of so many of our family memories and conversations. You all were a BIG part of my families early years growing up and I cherish them deeply. We lost my mom back in 2006 and I know the pain you are going through. Just be thankful for all the years you got to have her here. I’m sure my mother and Francis are catching up as I’m writing this 🙂 I wish you’ll my best.
