Hi Rena, I’m so sorry to hear your mom passed away. It’s been a long time since I last saw her, but I will always remember the big smile on her face . The picture you chose for the obituary is perfect. Our moms always had a great time going out to go play bingo together . I’m sure Anna has her arms wrapped around Gerry in a big welcome.
My sincerest condolences during this difficult time.
