George, So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She was such a hard worker yet I never heard her complain. She was always so friendly and sweet to me when I was at your house. I ache for you for the void you will have in your heart and your life now. Remember her when she was young & healthy, and keep that image in your head and heart. Thinking of you and am here for you any time. Kay Burnham Davis
