Mary Margaret, I know you miss your mom; I wish I could have met her. She was certainly loving, caring and FUN, because she raised a loving, caring, FUN daughter. As hard as it is to be without her now, I think heaven will be an even happier place with her there. My thoughts are with you and your family as you negotiate this difficult time. Bill
