Mike, so sorry about your mom. She was a great lady and a joy to be around. First met her at our wedding chivalry over 58 years ago. Always enjoyed visiting with her. Sorry, can't come to services because of medical procedure this morning, but our prayers and thoughts are with you. May God bless you with many pleasant memories.
