I was so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of your Mother. It is never easy to deal with the loss of a parent, but even more devastating when it happens unexpectedly. My heart goes out to you, and our prayers are with you as you honor your mother and remember her life. God bless you and your family, Kristi Schultz
