So sorry to hear about your mom. I just asked God to bless your Family and give them strength during this time of morning. Always got a kick out of your mom and the way she would talk to my dad when he was going off kidding her she would say shut up Mel or Ill tell the truth about you- just always cracked me up. A lot of fun to be with. God Bless you and your family, Don Hodges
