    Sorry we will not be able to be with you this weekend as we are out of town, but we will remember your Mom very well as a very special and caring person. We know that you all will miss her, but we are sure your have many special memories to keep of her. We especially remember how she would keep my our Dad in the “loop” by calling him frequently when they all were very elderly and not able to get around anymore. Our prayers are with you all,
