I am so sorry about the death of your mother. She was very sweet and a wonderful neighbor. God bless all of you and know that your mom will always be in your hearts.

I would have been at the visitation, but I had to pick up my daughter and her family at the Indianapolis airport late yesterday. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
