Tina, I am sorry this is late as I was away for 3 weeks and just read this obit.

I am so so sorry for the loss of your mom. You certainly had enough heart ache in your life with this disease. You seem to have quite a large family and please take comfort with each other.

You were a wonderful daughter who was right by her side. She was very lucky to have you as you were to have her.

My deepest condolences goes out to you my friend,

Maryanne :cry:
