Your Mom, Jeannette and I attended the same support group at theCross in 1998 and we became friends, having lunch with others from the group over the years.
She always came with such a positive attitude and we loved hearing how her family was doing. She spoke of you with such joy.
I will miss her. In deepest sympathy, Elaine
