My most sincere condolences to you, Julie, and your entire family. Your mother and I didn’t have a chance to spend much time together before she moved to Mission. I liked reading about her life today – we had much in common. That increases my sense of sorrow that we did
not get to relive our youthful years; she and I
had lots of history we could have shared. Call if I can help you in any way. Hugs, Pat
