Tom & Sue & your families...
So very sorry to learn of your mother's passing.. I always enjoyed talking with her..i didn't realize she had been in a nursing home..I guess I'd lost track of her...I'm certain she is the happiest ever now with meeting her Creator plus being reunited with Jack...and her siblings...
I wish I could attend her memorial service, but my husband limits my comings and goings somewhat..Talk to Dory McNett,.. your cousin and mine too, I'm sure she will explain...
Peace be with all of you...
