    I'm sorry that I was not there for mom's passing and services. She always treated me with respect and love and I truly loved her too. I will never forget the birthday cards she use to send me every year. She was the best grandma Mike, Susan and Doug could have ask for, she truly loved all of them. We can all take comfort in knowing that she is in a better place now. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you all.
