Girls – I am very sorry for the loss you must bear with the passing of your mother. She is with her “Bobby” again -I always thought it was so cute when she would call him that. I think maybe she and my mom are having a good long chat about now – they will have a lot to catch up on about the neighborhood. May God grant you peace and comfort at this time.
