Ron, Carol and family–we are so sad at the passing of your mother. She was a wonderful woman and I enjoyed visiting her with Brian Kinzel and the boys when we were young. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers as you move through this difficult time of grieving–just know that we feel the pain too. Enjoy talking with folks about the wonderful memories that they have of your mother and find comfort and peace in them. God Bless.
