I am sorry for your loss, Your Mom was a very loving person. I have many memory's of her sitting around the kitchen table talking over dinner. Neal it's been 30 + years. My Mom passed away at age 68 this past Jan. from lung cancer. I'm still trying to get over the shock. Your Mom lived a nice long life with a loving family. Celebrate her life and take care!
