    Hello All,

    I was sad to hear that your mom has passed and was just wanting you to know that I am thinking of everyone at this very sad time. Your mom was a great lady and was always very kind to me when I was at your home in Winston Heights Mountview. I have not seen any of you or your mom for many years but I still remember her very well. Accept my most sincerest sympathies during your time of sorrow and know that she may be gone from this earth but has now moved to a much happier and more gracious place in heaven with our Lord.
