    • Thanks Barb!
      You meant a lot to mom! And, she appreciated your kindness when you opened your house to her during some winters down in Florida & when she house sat for you when you went to France. We even found a couple post cards from you & Vince from France. Plus, some wedding photos from both weddings. How these years flew by!
      I hope your eye is doing better & we can get together again!
      Best Wishes!
