I am so sorry in the loss of your Mom. She was a wonderful woman. Never in all the years of us getting together at your house when we were all growing up did I ever hear your Mom get angry with all of us kids. She always made the best cinnamon rolls and baked apples. Your Mom was always so sweet and kind to everyone. Always the first to jump in a help others in need. She set a wonderful example for all of us. Just an awesome woman and Mom! Marlene you are so much like her. You are all in my heart and prayers as you deal with the loss of your Mom, Grandmother and GreatGrandmother. Just always try to remember all the wonderful times you had with her.
