Girls, I am so sorry for your loss. We lost Mom in 1996 and she has been missed.Like you guys, we had already lost our Dad, so it is much harder when both are gone. I hope she did not suffer long, I hope God was a merciful God.I will be thinking and praying for all of you. Remember, you will always, always,have your memories.
