Dear Jimmy, Sherri, and Susan,
I'm so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I loved your Mom, she was a real gem and always super kind to me, I will miss her. I'm grateful that I had a chance to talk to her often when my own Mom was sick; she was feisty, and a nurse to her core, which is big praise in that band of special women!I don't know if I'll see you guys next Sunday, but I certainly hope so. I was just remembering watching the Apollo 11 moon landing at your house, back in 1969! I love you guys, my prayers are with you.
