    I am so sorry to hear of your mom and my Aunt Lil”s passing. My prayers go out to all of the family members in your time of grief. She was such a beautiful and very sweet woman. I will always remember her very kind and caring nature. I was so happy to be at her last year’s birthday party. She made me feel so special while she was the one being honored. The DVD is such a beautiful tribute to such a fine person that will be missed.
