  1. We were sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I have special memories of her. She carefully made my wedding dress over 44 years ago. I loved how she was so generous and giving of her time. I’ve saved that dress and will always remember her as kind to me, she touched my heart. She was beautiful inside and out.
    God bless you, may she rest in peace.
