My dear friend, I was so sorry to hear about your beautiful mother passing away. I remember when you would come into the Airport Diner. You always took good care of your mother. You had a special bond. She was lucky to have a wonderful daughter like you and she knew she was loved. God bless you Gail. Love Roxann
