Mary, again I just want to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. It is so difficult to lose a parent and I think especially a mother. My heart goes out to your brother Terry and his wife for their constant care of your mom and also to your entire family. May God bless each and every one of you. Take care. Love, Candy Ames
