Our sympathy to your family on the loss of your mother. I remember her as a kind and caring mother in an active household. She liked to get out once in a while with your dad and I was your babysitter from down the street. I always tried to give her a good report on you guys! She and your dad were sweet neighbors and mom enjoyed them. Hope they meet up again soon.
