    Oh Sally. So sorry to learn of your mom’s death. She is such a sweet lady. I always enjoyed talking with her and watching her crochet and color. She taught me a new stitch for my afghans. You are such a wonderful daughter!!! The food you prepared for her, keeping track of her meds, always being there for her. You can rest peacefully knowing you did all you possibly could and more for her. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Love and Blessings, June and Bill
