I am so sorry to hear about your passing. I remember seeing her at the summit when I was there I worked as a CNA there for awhile. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Bonnie, I had no idea this was your mother. I am so sorry for your loss. When my mom was at the Summitt I met your mother and fell in love with herd . I would see her every time I went to see mom. Didnt she go home for a while? It seems to me she left before my mom went home. Its such a small world. Hope you and your family are doing well and my thoughts and prayers are with you=O=Od
