I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I can still see her smiling face when I came into your house in Yeadon as a little girl. She always had that wonderful smile and always made me laugh.

Bonnie and your entire family Ed and I are so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I would like to use this quote from Helen Keller because it is so true "What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Our prayers and thoughts will be with all of you. May you find peace and love
