Dearest David and Laura, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Mom was absolutely precious! I have the fondest memories of her from my younger years...I'd do chores for my grandma and in return, she'd take me to the Dime Store to spend my money. Your Mom would patiently help me pick out things to spend my money on! She was the best of the best, and I know she will be greatly missed. Praying for you all! Much love!
