Sandy and family, My prayers go out to you all. Can't believe it has been 8 months already since mom went home. We are sad to not have her to see but she left us with so many memories, we are happy for her now. May your days get more comforting without your mom here on earth. Bless you for taking care of your mom and being so good to come see our mom.
