Family I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, mother-in-law and grand mother. She was such a joy to be around. I am so thankful we were neighbors for many years. I have alot of wonderful memories. Know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Rejoice that she is in the arms of her heavenly father with all who have gone before. What a reunion that must have been for her.
