Sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers
Nancy and Neil-
So sorry to hear of your loss- your Mom was a great lady, I've been reminiscing about all the visits to your house growing up and your visits to ours. I remember her immaculate house and her laughter. I am unable to get to the services due to my work schedule, but will be thinking of you two in the days to come. God Bless!
