Linda, Doug,Jan and Shirley: My sympathy goes to you all at this difficult time. Please know that your sweet Mother and sister has always held a special place in my heart since the first time I met her. She is happy and free of pain and worry now with God in Heaven. God bless you all with love and strength.
