Tracy, Ben, and Nick,
I was saddened to hear about your mother's passing. Your parents were so supportive of me as a "rookie" teacher back in the early '80's" at QND. I will pray that God gives you the strength you need in the days ahead and that HE fills your heart and soul with only the great memories you shared with your mother. God Bless.
