Dear Johno and family: I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She and my mom shared a friendship for over 60 years. She was a great lady. When taking her and my mom to church at Saint Francis on Sundays I would hear many stories of their coal region upbringing and working together at the local hospitals as nurses. I had a wonderful visit with your mom after my Mom passed away and just before Covid locked us down and will treasure that time always. I hope she and my mom Therese are having a great time in heaven. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.
