    So sorry to hear this news and I am working if I had known before just now Monday I would have been there. She was a special lady and I know will be dearly missed. My mother had been gone nine years this past Easter Sunday and she loved your mother so they are rejoicing together now in their heavenly home. My prayers are with you all she was precious.
