    about the passing of your Dear Mother. She was special to everyone that knew her thru the years. She always made me feel so welcome when I came by for a visit. Most of the time she sent me home with something she had baked. That was truly a Blessing. She is walking with the Angels now. May God comfort your Family in the days to come.
