Elaine, carolyn and donna and all the families.
It is with regret that I have to tell you I am unable to attend the funeral of your dear Mom. I have a few health issues that I am contending with, the worst of which is swollen feet and ankles. I have diabetic neuropathy. It worsened this past couple of days, to the point where I have no shoes that will fit on. It saddens me to tell you I won’t be there. I wanted to hug you all to me and tell you once again how very much your mom adored each one of you. I hope I can get a copy of the service. I will remember you all in my prayers. God bless you all and as you carry on with your lives, remember we will all meet again one day.
All my love and respect, my husband Ben joins me in saying “God bless you all”.
