To The Family,
Sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. She was a lovely lady, always out taking care of things in her garden and doing paint touch-ups. She was a good neighbour/friend to my mother, Floss White. Last year I ran into her at The Agnes Pratt Home, and we had a nice chat. Blessings to all the family.

I was so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I hope you are finding comfort with your family and the lifetime of memories you were able to make with her. Sending big hugs to you and your family,
