I’m very sorry to hear the news about your mom. I know how special she was to you. Both your parents loved you very much and they always seemed very proud of you and everything you and Terry did for them. Michael was very fortunate to have had two grandparents that loved him and would do anything for him.
I hope they have their “cards and baskets” as they reunite once again

Kim and family, so saddened to hear of aunt Bernice’s passing, another good one gone to soon.
